MP backs cancer charity campaign to improve care
A CAMPAIGN to help people living with incurable secondary breast cancer has been backed by Macclesfield MP David Rutley.
He met with Breast Cancer Care in Parliament to hear about the charity’s campaign ‘Secondary. Not second rate’ to ensure people with incurable secondary breast cancer get the best care possible.
Ahead of Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Mr Rutley attended the event, hosted by Sharon Hodgson MP, co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer, to meet women living with incurable breast cancer and call for improved support.
He said: “It is vital that during Breast Cancer Awareness month, people with incurable breast cancer are not forgotten, and in the future everyone diagnosed and living with the disease should be counted so that they can get the support they need. I would like to thank Breast Cancer Care for their hard work in drawing attention to this issue, and I will continue to support this campaign in the future.”
Danni Manzi, from the charity, said: “We are extremely grateful to David for joining us to show his support for our campaign improving care for incurable secondary breast cancer patients.”
