Survey – Share your thoughts on our real life photos series for Stand Up To Cancer

real life mastectomy

To promote our fundraising and awareness campaign for Stand Up To Cancer, we want to sincerely showcase different people’s experiences with cancer. Through a series of photos, incorporating different cancer types and a diverse range of people, we’re aiming to broaden the debate around how cancer is represented. Share your views on the idea and how you felt about your body image during or following your cancer experience, to help us capture a diverse range of experiences and emotions.

About this opportunity

Two years ago we worked with a photographer, Ami Barwell, to raise awareness of some images she’d taken of women who had undergone mastectomies as part of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. Ami had been inspired by her own mum’s experience of breast cancer.

Following on from this, we’re working with her again to create a second series of images incorporating different cancer types and a diverse range of people, to broaden the debate around how cancer is represented. The aim of these images is to share a real and honest look at cancer patients and how they feel during or after their treatment. We want the series to celebrate cancer patients and their bodies, whilst opening up the conversation about how cancer should be represented in the media.

If you’d like to get involved in this project please complete this short 5 minute survey, to share your thoughts on how you felt about your body during and after treatment, as well as how you feel cancer is represented in the media
