North Manchester FM 106.6 is an Answer Cancer Champion.
Tune in from 11am to hear Kirit Patel, part of the Answer Cancer Engagement & Delivery team, speak to people who have become Answer Cancer Champions and those who have direct experience of cancer.
The aims of the Answer Cancer programme are:
People need to talk more about cancer with their family and friends so it isn’t seen as a taboo subject. Cancer can happen to anyone and isn’t something to be ashamed of.
Everyone should be aware of the possible signs and symptoms of cancer so they know when something might be wrong, and then seek help as soon as possible.
Cancer screening is vital so don’t ignore the letters about these, take them up and encourage your loved ones to do the same.
Early detection of cancer is key to better outcomes from cancer so speak to your GP if you have any worries and take part in NHS screening.
Following Covid restrictions, both GP services and NHS screening are now back open and safe for patients to use.
