I had the privilege to attend a special Westminster reception to celebrate the great work carried out by Breast Cancer Care in its fortieth year.
As a form of cancer that kills 12,000 people every year and has over half a million individual sufferers in the UK, I am aware of the essential role Breast Cancer Care plays with these patients. The charity’s work often begins as soon as someone has been diagnosed with the disease.
The reception provided me an opportunity to get a practical understanding of the role carried out by Breast Cancer Care by talking to staff members, service users and volunteers. The event once again reinforced the crucial and specialist role played by Breast Cancer Care in medically, physically and emotionally helping patients deal with this deadly form of cancer.
