By reaching out into the wider community we are working to help prevent cancer by actively talking to the public, helping people recognise the signs and symptoms of cancer, encouraging them to seek treatment earlier, and accept cancer screening invitations.
Here to Help
The LiveLife Cancer Awareness Service is available to communities throughout our region as a mobile facility. Community groups, organisations, and large-scale event organisers can access and book the free resource to attend their meeting or event. We also offer in-house sessions for corporate partners and local businesses who may wish to run cancer awareness courses or days.
One of the most effective ways of improving cancer survival is early detection and diagnosis. People diagnosed with cancer at an early stage have the best chance of survival. Early diagnosis means an increased range of treatment options and improved quality of life.
Reduce the Risk
We also want to help people reduce their risk of developing cancer:
Four in ten cancers are preventable and there are things we can do that reduce the chances of getting it
A person’s risk of developing cancer depends on many factors, including age, genetics, and exposure to risk factors, but many lifestyle factors also play a large part
Helping people make small lifestyle changes can make a big difference.
