A simple conversation can make all the difference to someone who may be worried about a change to their body.
Familiar faces in the community are ideally placed to encourage their customers to visit the GP if they have any concerns, or to be able to point them in the direction of local healthy living support services.
It’s not about being an expert in cancer or health – it’s about having simple, yet powerful conversations that could make all the difference.
You can play a role in raising awareness of cancer in your community. We can show you how.
