FACT Big Build
"Following my diagnosis with breast cancer in 2005, I set up FACT (Fighting All Cancers Together) to help people and families in the North East who are affected by cancer.
FACT has grown from strength to strength and now offers over 12,000 engagements and helps 2,000 unique service users a year. Almost 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer by 2020. Thankfully, medicine is advancing so many people are surviving and living longer following diagnosis. However, this means that more people need support services to help them live with and beyond cancer. Support needs to catch up with medicine!
FACT has big plans to make sure that the people of the North East have all of the support they need to cope with a diagnosis of cancer, and this is where I would like to respectfully ask that you consider supporting our exciting plans".
