It's estimated there are around 35,000 people currently living with secondary breast cancer. But without knowing how many patients there are, we can't be sure of their needs or identify areas of care that need the most attention. Breast Cancer Now, along with amazing supporters like Claire and Jen, has long been campaigning for improved data collection on secondary breast cancer.
We talk with Claire and Jen, who both have a secondary breast cancer diagnosis, about the work that is going into getting a secondary breast cancer audit approved, how it affects them personally, and what more needs to be done to make this audit happen. We also hear from Breast Cancer Now policy manager, Anna, more detailed information about what a breast cancer audit entails and why it's so important.
You can follow Breast Cancer Now's channels to hear more and participate in audit activity on the Change Makers Facebook Group and our Twitter feed. You can also sign up to our campaigns network to hear more about data collection, audits and our campaigns, on our website.
