As part of this year’s Ethnic Minority Cancer Awareness Month campaign Cancerequality have produced this  advert to help challenge the various cultural myths and taboos that exist in some communities.

Cancer means more than having a life-changing disease. For some people it can lead to blame, shame, fear, rejection, isolation and judgment. Let’s make a stand today and support the millions who live with cancer, because together we can make things better.

We hope that by sharing this advert amongst the community and health care professionals we will help stop the stigma faced by those affected by cancer.
