Our Breast Cancer Now Ambassadors have committed to taking action nationally and locally to help stop breast cancer and save lives – find out if your MP has signed up, and take action if they haven’t.
We currently have over 190 MPs who are Breast Cancer Now Ambassadors who are championing breast cancer issues in their constituencies and in Parliament. They are there to make sure the voices of breast cancer patients are heard at the highest levels.
The more MPs hear from local people, the more likely they are to take action – it only takes a moment and could make a huge difference.
In the time I have been MP for Torfaen I have already met many constituents who have been affected by breast cancer and seen first-hand the impact it has had on their lives and on those of their family and friends. I want to know that I am doing all I can to support the work of Breast Cancer Now in fighting this devastating disease, which is why being a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador means so much to me.”
So far, our Breast Cancer Now Ambassadors have campaigned successfully to Keep Kadcyla, introduced a Bill to improve access to off-patent drugs, been active in the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer and attended various events in Parliament including our annual wear it pink photocall.
Breast Cancer Now Ambassadors in the Welsh Assembly
In the run-up to last year’s election in Wales, we also called on Assembly candidates to become Breast Cancer Now Ambassadors. Thanks to you, we have 25 Assembly Members who are committed to working with us. We’ll update our website very soon so that you can find out whether or not your AM pledged their support – watch this space.
