More than 3,000 people in Humber, Coast and Vale have now completed Cancer Champion training – helping to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of cancer and encourage early detection in our local communities.
The Cancer Champion programme launched in Humber, Coast and Vale in September 2018 and is an integral part of the Cancer Alliance’s awareness and early diagnosis programme. In 2020, sessions began being delivered virtually in order to continue training people safely throughout the pandemic.
Here, some of the people who have completed the training share their stories.
Cancer Champion Amanda decided to attend the training because she’d been affected by cancer in her personal life. Now, in her role at Hull City Council, she’s encouraging colleagues to take part. Click here to read her story.
