Every Step of the Way

Leave a comment

Tuesday 25th March sees the launch of our new project publication “Every Step of the Way“: 13 stories illustrating the difference that independent advocacy makes to older people affected by cancer.

Hi Res cover

Funded by our partner Macmillan Cancer Support, Every Step of the Way features the stories of 13 older people who have been supported by their peer advocates along the cancer journey. The stories are moving and help explain the significant difference being supported by someone close to you in age and experience, who themselves have been touched by cancer, make to everyday life.
