Everyone at Cancer Campaign in Suffolk is very sad to hear about the death of
Dame Deborah James.
As a local cancer charity, we understand how important her messages were, and still
are, of raising awareness around the difficult subject of talking about cancer and
bowel cancer in particular.
Deborah managed to take the mystery out of checking for early signs that something
might not be right and urged people to seek help as early as possible .. because an
early diagnosis means early treatment.
Millions of lives are likely to have been saved by Deborah sharing her cancer
experience, raising awareness of cancer and breaking down the uncomfortable
conversations we all need to have … that is the important legacy she leaves behind.
