I have been contact my a number of constituents who have requested that, if elected, I become a Breast Cancer Ambassador. Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer are uniting this spring to become the leading national breast cancer charity. The charities are committed to improving the treatment, support and care of people affected by breast cancer. The campaigning work is guided and informed by the views and experiences of people living with breast cancer. Breast Cancer Ambassadors take action for people affected by breast cancer in the constituency and do what they can to help to put an end to women dying from this disease. For example, I could raise the issue of breast cancer with our local health bodies and attend events in Parliament or in our constituency.
I know that Breast Cancer is a disease which touches so many lives and families and I would like to do what I can to help those affected, so yesterday I decided to promise to become a Breast Cancer Ambassador. This morning, I received the following confirmation:
I just wanted to reply on Mia’s behalf to say thank you so much for your response, it’s fantastic to hear that you’d like to become a Breast Cancer Ambassador in the next Parliament.
We’ve noted your response and we will be in touch with Ambassadors after the election to suggest a variety of ways in which you can take action to help us to overcome breast cancer throughout the next Parliament. If you have any questions or would like any more information before then, please just let me know.
Thank you again, we’re so grateful to have your support and look forward to working with you in the future.
