Tell YOUR story to the ICR
Monday, 29th January 2018
Roger Wotton of The National Federation of Prostate Cancer Support Groups writes:-
The Federation has been approached by the Institute of Cancer Research asking if our members with prostate cancer would be willing to tell their story. This was the note we received:-
The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) has discovered and developed many of the cancer treatments widely used today, but we want to raise greater awareness of the advances our researchers are making. In order to do this, we are getting in touch with people who have been diagnosed with cancer, or the family and friends of those diagnosed, to share their stories with us. We are especially interested in talking to men who have been diagnosed or are undergoing therapy for prostate cancer so as a prostate cancer support group, your help would be invaluable. With their help we hope to clearly demonstrate the impact of our research, raise more awareness of cancer and drive more support for the crucial research that we are doing at the ICR to help defeat cancer.
You can sign up to share your story with us (https://www.icr.ac.uk/about-us/share-your-story). Please do feel free to share this amongst yourselves, your peers and your support group members. All of this information is stored in a secure database, and once you enter your details in the "Share your story" page, a member of the ICR's Communication team will contact you to discuss your story in more depth and talk you through the next steps.
I leave it to you to share this note with any of your members who might be interested.
