2010 Awareness Day - First Ever! - UK

To mark the day for the first time in the UK, the sponsoring organization, Cancer Care, produced a set of advertisements featuring women who are living with secondary breast cancer. They also ran a media campaign and hosted events in Westminster, Cardiff, Sheffield and Glasgow. The media campaign focussed on the issues faced by people living with secondary breast cancer, and how their lives could be improved through better services and greater understanding.
