NEL Cancer Alliance would like to share information on two areas:

Best For My Chest: a unique breast screening campaign in north east London for the LGBTIQ+ community 

North East London Cancer Alliance, in partnership with leading LGBTIQ+ cancer charity Live Through This, has successfully launched a new awareness campaign for breast screening which is designed to speak specifically to the LGBTIQ+ community. 

The ‘Best For My Chest’ campaign aims to overcome fears and barriers the community is facing, encouraging more people to come forward for breast screening which will help save many lives.  

Read more about the campaign on the North East London Cancer Alliance website. 

Engaging on cancer signs and symptoms with older males in deprived areas through sport 

North East London Cancer Alliance has been working for the last few months with Leyton Orient Football Club to reach out to older males who traditionally do not come forward with signs and symptoms of cancer, as part of their ‘It’s not a game’ campaign. 

This included attending a health awareness day at a home game for Leyton Orient FC on 29 October. Throughout the day, we spoke to a number of local residents to highlight the importance of getting checked if you have signs or symptoms of cancer, as well as handing out leaflets with essential cancer information on.
