Rebecca Evans, Welsh Labour's prospective Assembly candidate for Gower, has promised to be a Breast Cancer Ambassador if elected to represent Gower at the Assembly in June.
She is backing Breast Cancer Now’s 'Stop Women Dying' campaign by committing to take action for people in people affected by breast cancer and doing what she can to help put an end to women dying from the disease.
Breast Cancer Now are the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease. They believe that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
Rebecca Evans said: "I am proud to have signed up to be a Breast Cancer Ambassador.
"We are investing more in our NHS than ever before, and cancer survival is increasing faster in Wales than elsewhere in the UK. We have put in place tougher waiting time targets for cancer treatment in Wales. But we need to keep on working to stop breast cancer taking the lives of the women we love."
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Wales and this year around 600 women in Wales will die from the disease.
