Bill Beevers is a trained Cancer Support Advocate with the Beth Johnson Foundation. Bill also sits on the Stoke on Trent Local Cancer Champions Board and last on the attending the first meeting of the National Cancer champions Board in London. This is what he had to say about that meeting.

I was lucky enough to be chosen to represent Stoke on Trent on the National Champions Board and although I didn’t know what to expect I must say I was pleasantly surprised at what I experienced on the day,even though there was a lot of professional and learned people sitting round the table I never felt over-awed by it in anyway in fact everybody was very friendly and of course we were all there to achieve the same aims.
