Congratulations to Steve Rotheram on being re-elected as Mayor of Liverpool City Region.
Prior to Mayoral elections, campaigners across the North West signed an open letter encouraging candidates to become ‘Cancer Champions’.
Now that you, Mr Rotheram, have been re-elected to office the plea remains the same; become a Cancer Champion and commit your support to the 53,000 people living with cancer in the Liverpool City Region who need your help now more than ever.
Macmillan Cancer Support are still hearing from people in desperate need. The pandemic has led to thousands of vital cancer treatments and appointments being postponed, cancelled or changed.
Since the start of the outbreak, 1,415 fewer people in the Liverpool City Region have started cancer treatment compared to the year before.
The pandemic is continuing to take its toll on people who are already struggling with their cancer diagnosis.
The Liverpool City Region Mayor can help by becoming a Cancer Champion; a prominent voice for people living with cancer and I am asking you to work with me and Macmillan to:
Make sure everyone knows how to get cancer support.
Meet with people living with cancer in Greater Manchester and myself within the first 100 days being in office.
Take part in or host a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning this September to help raise funds for people living with cancer.
Cancer matters, does it matter to you?
