Text of Petition:
People living with
metastatic breast cancer (MBC)in Wales are being badly let down by the system.
Currently, Wales has just one dedicated secondary breast cancer clinical nurse
specialist (CNS), a situation that leaves potentially hundreds of people
without adequate support. We need to know how many people are living with MBC
to improve services. And we want improve quality of life outcomes by raising
awareness of MBC red flag symptoms.
We are calling for:
1. Every person with
Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in Wales to have access to a dedicated secondary
breast cancer clinical nurse specialist.
2. A collection of data of
those living and being treated for MBC in Wales.
We have written an open
letter to the Minister for Health and Social Services on behalf of metastatic
breast cancer patients and their carers to show the need for improved quality
of life and more support for those living with MBC.
