Breast Cancer is a major killer. Disproportionately large numbers of Black and minority ethnic women were found to have the lowest of all in identifying cancer symptoms.
Samec Trust assisted in raising awareness of breast cancer and Breast Cancer Care services amongst women from minority ethnic communities by organising a series of workshops around the country . We recruited women from African, Asian and Arabic backgrounds who had been diagnosed with breast cancer to talk about their experiences of diagnosis and treatment .. Sadly taboos and social stigma were sad but revealing insights. Our work contributed to the Same Difference campaign.
