Campaign for cancer prosthetics for ethnic minorities

Cancer Education UK today launch their campaign for the NHS to increase funding for breast and other prosthetics following cancer treatment, in a range of skin tones.
Cancer prosthetics for ethnic minorities

Currently, cancer patients from ethnic minorities are not offered prostheses in a range of skin tone colours. There is only one 'generic flesh tone'. 

We reported on this health inequality back in August 2019, as part of our long term plan. [page 53, 'Jo's story'.]

Cancer Education UK picked up on our findings, and are taking this issue to a national level with a petition that will hopefully achieve change.

 Find out more and sign the petition.
