The Rarer Cancers Foundation is holding a patient day for cancer patients, carers and their families in order that you can gain a better understanding of the care and support you should expect after being diagnosed with a rare or less common cancer.

The conference will explore many of the options available to patients such as referrals to expert second opinions, specialist cancer centres, clinical trials, radiotherapy, access to drugs and much more besides.

The conference will also include an exciting session which will focus specifically on how patients can help to campaign for improvements and better outcomes at both local and national levels for all cancer patients.

You will be able to participate in a 1 to 1 session with advocacy experts where you will be able to receive individual advice and support to help overcome specific barriers that you may be facing such as how to access latest treatments or drugs, lack of information and support, access to clinical nurse specialists etc.

This event is designed to be informative, supportive and inspiring for patients at all stages of their cancer journey. We want you all to have a better understanding of who is involved in your care and how you can have a positive impact and maybe help improve services and support for all rarer cancer patients.
