Supporting a funding proposal - liquid biopsy research programme
We are seeking two Patient and Carer Representatives (with experience of breast or ovarian cancer) to join us in support of a funding application to demonstrate the value of a HrC (The Himanshu Roy Cancer Test) and AOB (All-Organ Biopsy) liquid biopsy test within the diagnostics pathways of cancer.

You will be part of a group of stakeholders, including other clinicians and managers, who will help build the application for funding and, if successful thereafter sit on the project team group for the duration of the programme.

The application will need to be submitted before December, so there will be at least two project meetings before then.

Meetings will take place virtually on MS Teams.

Those who express an interest will be asked to have an informal phone conversation with Louise Lawrence, Innovation Programme Manager, to demonstrate a willingness and commitment to support the application process and design, build and implementation of the project.

Share Your Cancer Experience Story
Would you consider sharing your experience of cancer in a print and/or online news article for our website, local media and/or social media? If you have had a cancer diagnosis in the last 5 years, or are living with cancer, we’d love to hear from you. You’d need to live or have been/ be being treated in Greater Manchester.

Sharing your experience about cancer can be really helpful for others. It helps raise awareness of different types of cancer amongst members of the general public as well as highlighting cancer symptoms people can look out for in a more personal and memorable way than an information leaflet. It also helps demystify cancer, encourage conversations around cancer, lets people know about treatment involved and helps us to demonstrate that a variety of different people are affected by cancer. We are also interested in hearing from people caring for those with cancer. You can see examples of other patient stories on our news page.

To enquire about this opportunity please send us your name, age, cancer type, month and year of diagnosis, the area of Greater Manchester you live in, your phone number, and other brief information which you feel might be relevant or newsworthy.
***Please be aware we might not be able to reply to you immediately but will endeavour to send a reply within a fortnight.
