Here at Breast Friends, we believe everyone affected by cancer deserves equitable treatment, regardless of income, geography, discrimination, education, or personal relationships. Cancer knows no boundaries, and neither should the care we receive.
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that small steps really can make a BIG difference.
Here are 3 small steps YOU can take to advocate for equity in cancer care…
👣 Use your Voice🗣️ Share your cancer experience on social media or with local leaders, highlighting the importance of equal access to quality care. Your story has the power to inspire change. Use the hashtag #CloseTheGap to amplify your message and join a collective voice for equality.
👣Educate and Empower 📚 Knowledge is power! Share informative resources about disparities in cancer care in your community. Help others understand how factors like income and discrimination can impact treatment access. Small steps towards awareness lead to big strides in change.
👣Support Local Initiatives 🤝 Get involved with local organisations working to bridge the gap in cancer care. Whether it’s volunteering your time, donating to a cause, or simply spreading the word, every effort counts.
Remember, it’s the collective power of small acts that paves the way for significant change. Let’s stand together, raise awareness, and advocate for a future where cancer care is truly equal for everyone.
