For over a week now, InciSioN UK has actively participated in the global campaign for World Cancer Day. Our advocacy effort has been led by the wonderful Ines Ongenda, one of our InciSioN UK project leads. We shared regular research articles, advocacy videos and podcast episodes featuring interviews with a variety of healthcare professionals, all of whom shared their valuable perspectives on the present and future of cancer care. We also published five beautiful stories, submitted to us by talented writers from different corners of the world.
We hope that our campaign has been engaging, interesting and inspiring, and that we were able to meaningfully contribute to the global advocacy effort for WCD... and If this post is your first encounter with InciSioN UK, please do look back and be the judge of that for yourself!
Final Podcast Episode
A very special and final episode in our WCD series: Ines Ongenda, InciSioN UK project lead speaks with Angie & Karlee from "Mommy had a little cancer" (https://anchor.fm/mommyhadalittlecancer) about their experiences navigating breast cancer (Karlee) and lung cancer (Angie) diagnoses, treatments and beyond, in London (UK) and Geneva (Switzerland).
InciSion UK x University of Exeter BodySoc: Fundraising for Children's Hospice South West
On the 4th February, the day of WCD, The University of Exeter Body Society in partnership with InciSioN UK donated their Legs, Bum and Tum class in aid of Children's Hospice South West. They raised £63.80, which InciSioN UK is matching, bringing the total to £127.60.
Thank you to all of those who sweated & moved for such a good cause. We hope that the children at the hospice, who are suffering from cancer and other life-limiting conditions, will appreciate our small contribution to their fight.
Finally, a massive thank you to all of you, our readers, for engaging with our WCD campaign.
