Lucy becomes a 'Cancer Chancer' Champion

My work connecting with the community of Trafford is very rewarding, and has enabled me to make many new friends.  Recently I have been fortunate to be invited to take part in the Macmillan Cancer Support Campaign ‘don’t be a cancer chancer’ .  The people I trained with are  shown above, we have all volunteered our time to each reach out to 100 people in Trafford and share the campaigns knowledge. Many people I know have been affected by cancer. My best friend Joanne had cancer at 35 and won her battle because she detected a lump early, my Mum’s best friend wasn’t so lucky and died of breast cancer (over 20years ago) leaving a young family, and I’m sure you all have your own stories, which is why detecting the early signs of cancer is so important, it  could literally save your life. As a ‘Cancer champion’ I have been asked to talk about the first signs and symptoms of Lung, Breast and Bowel cancer. Most recently I have spoken to various church and social clubs which has been a fantastic experience. As well as the talk we have a quiz and ‘signs & symptoms’ board. Everyone has been extremely positive taking on board this essential knowledge.     If you would like to find out more please visit www.cancerchancer.com if you know a group that would be interested in a presentation please call me on 07841 582372  Content Here
