Rose Thompson's Cancer Support Fund
With this in mind I started an organisatin called BME Cancer Communities (BMECC) to inform and support seldom heard Black and Minority Ethnic communities and low income households with advanced cancers. Both are more likely to be diagnosed with advanced cancers and unfortunately from our experience, more likely to die prematurely as a result.
I am passionate about ending cancer inequalities, but first we want to create support networks for the most vulnerable. BMECC is self funding because I believe it is important for the people we serve to tell their own stories and develop their own suppoart networks.
BMECC has initiated support groups with very limited funding. “Sista’s Againgst Cancer” is a new group in need of financial support. Our further aim to develop and establish a nationwide network of similar groups delivering culturally approriate support and friendship.
Your financial contribution would be an invaluable investment in the services we provide to those affected by cancer.
Fundraising is ongoing as intend to achieve the 5,000 target,. I am greatly encouraged by those who have promised to donate next week on pay day and are raising funds via their friends and contacts.
Make my day by taking the time to donate. Stuck indoors today with a common cold. Hopefully gone before Sistas Against Cancer siuport group meeting on Monday.
Let's make more groups happen.
Thanks to those who have donated recently . We are now on the way to raising our second 1,000 which will bring us closer to the target of 5,000 to increase the number of support groups for the most vulnerable in the UK. Sistas Against Cancer in Nottingham is coming together and aim to start another group in West Midlands with Cynthia Dwyer who lost her husband to prostate cancer. Raise 1020 to date. Excited now it is increasing. Let's keep it going. Don't just rate. Please donate. Thanks Rose
