Barry supports campaign to raise awareness of secondary breast cancer and to improve care for patients

On 13th October 2015 Barry joined campaigners from Breast Cancer Care in the House of Commons to pledge his support for people living with incurable secondary breast cancer and by calling for improved care.

 

Currently data for primary breast cancer is recorded, yet no accurate figures exist around the number of people diagnosed or living with incurable secondary breast cancer. Breast Cancer Care believes the poorer care people with the incurable disease often receive is due to these missing numbers making it near impossible to plan the vital services needed. Breast Cancer Care wants to see the government commit to making the care and support for people living with the secondary breast cancer a priority.
