We deliver bespoke projects that provide the platform for cancer patients, and survivors to come forward and share their stories. For us, it is important to build a picture of the overall patient experience for POC. We also work in conjunction with mainstream cancer support charities and brands to ensure that the experiences of our patrons are being heard, and are reaching the right people to bring about change. Our projects are listed below.
Our ground-breaking debut project consisting of x2 monthly support groups (general and stage 4 specific), a podcast, a magazine and home to the UK’s first ever all Black female portrait exhibition. All the projects are centred around the experiences of women who have or have survived cancer. Our aim is to empower women of colour to share their stories and help shape the future of cancer support/treatment services to improve outcomes for POC cancer patients. View the website here.
Black Girl Rising is a peer-to-peer support group aimed at supporting young girls of colour (under 40) with cancer, and provide support and a safe space to share experiences. We want to educate and raise awareness about the impact of cancer on young girls of colour.
Following the success of Black Women Rising, we launched Black Men Rising as a response to the growing need for support services for black men who have or have survived cancer. Our aim is to listen and empower men of colour as well as provide a safe space for men to connect and be supported through their cancer journeys.
