What’s it all about?
Be Cancer SAFE cancer Champions are ordinary people who help spread awareness about cancer. They share with others as part of their everyday life simple cancer messages including; how to recognise signs and symptoms of cancer, how to check your body for lumps and where to go for help if you’re worried about cancer. We have resources available to help you pass these messages on.
