Last week, I had a meeting with the NHS‘ Cancer does not discriminate campaign in London – which aims to raise awareness of the illness within the BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) community, giving people a voice.
The meeting was excellent actually, with the director and I having much in common. I managed to get two ‘free’ t.shirts too, only because I asked for a medium and was given a large ‘just in case’! How rude? 😮
When I got home, I tweeted about my positive meeting and started to think about how I could help raise awareness of the illness not just within the BME community but the wider world.
For those of you who know me and/or read my blogs, you will know that My Mum died from ovarian cancer, Uncle Billy died from stomach cancer a few months ago and one of my sister’s has had Hodgkin’s decease.
So, I will always play my part where I can to try to cut people suffering from the various types of the illness.
With this, I have decided to accept an offer from the campaign to be one of its ambassadors. Nothing short, of a privilege.
I support this campaign because, cancer has affected me personally and in a non-discriminatory way.
I only wrote last week, about one of my closest friends mum sadly passing away from cancer.
Please take a look at www.bmecancervoice.co.uk, and add your VOICE! Remember…
Cancer does not discriminate.
This has been a… cancer does not discriminate, ‘View from the Bottom’.
Take care, Max x.
