David Amess MP attended the launch of the ‘Hear Me Now’ campaign looking at the ‘uncomfortable reality of prostate cancer in black African-Caribbean men’. The report was written by Rose Thompson, Director of BME Cancer Communities, pictured above. The report illustrates how some ethic groups experience higher than expected rates of prostate cancer. There are also a series of recommendations for national policy-makers in the report.
Commenting on the report, Mr Amess stated, “The launch of this campaign is a very important one and I was glad to be able to receive a copy of this report. I am very keen to support cancer sufferers in any way I can, and I hope this report is read very carefully by those in positions to make a difference.”
