Cancer52 has become a partner in Genetic Alliance's 'My Cancer, My DNA' project, together with Cancer Research UK, Bloodwise and Breast Cancer Now.
The project is funded by an NIHR Biomedical Research Centre award to the ICR and Royal Marsden and we have signed up to this project because we believe the work is important.
It focuses on trying to establish how people feel about the use of genetic information in the NHS and gives people who either have been diagnosed with cancer, or a member of their family, or is suspected to have or has an increased predisposition for cancer the chance to share their views.
Please do share it within your patient communities, and if people do respond to Genetic Alliance it would be great to know that they have done so.
The targeted output of this project is a Patient and Family Charter which will be launched during Genome Sequencing Week (March 2016, w/c 7th).
