In addition to providing access to mental health support for families and individuals affected by cancer, the Foundation also focuses on breaking the stigma associated with asking for and receiving mental health support. Our Global Ambassadors play a large part in actively working to achieve this by speaking on behalf of the Foundation, attending Foundation events and living their lives by example.
