MP backs can­cer char­ity cam­paign to im­prove care

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.”
