Make 2nds Count Patient Trial Advocate (PTA) Service
The PTA service is here to help secondary breast cancer patients potentially find a clinical trial and to support them through the clinical trial process.

Finding the right information about available clinical trials and understanding the associated complex information is a challenge for all secondary breast cancer patients.

The PTA is ran by senior research nurses with experience in secondary breast cancer and clinical trials.

If you are a patient living in the UK with metastatic breast cancer and interested in seeking advice about a clinical trial, please complete the referral form on the PTA section of the M2C website and book a slot to speak with a member of the team.

Black Women Rising

blackwomenrisinguk.org

The Leanne Pero Foundation and Black Women Rising was founded in 2017 by
multi award winning entrepreneur and Stage Three breast cancer survivor Leanne
Pero.
Black Women Rising was created to address the gaps in cancer support services for
Black cancer patients. Mainstream cancer services are not inclusive enough and do
not provide adequate support tailored to the Black and ethnic community. Similarly,
the community are not engaging with medical services which is leading to later
diagnosis and unnecessary deaths at a disproportionate level than women in other
groups.
Our monthly peer support groups are at the heart of our project. We also created the
first all-Black female cancer portrait exhibition which has toured London. We recently
launched our podcast and magazine.
All of this helps to fulfil our aims, which are to empower, raise awareness, promote
wellness within our community and ultimately save lives.
