Putting our region's cancer needs first

Our Region, Our Words


Inspired by our region's love for music and passion for home-grown heroes, the #OurRegionOurWords campaign features messages of hope in the form of lyrics made famous by high-profile local artists and bands.

Our Competition


As well as being well known and relatable, the words may reflect the experiences facing those affected by cancer.

Living in our region, we're 25% more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than in the rest of the UK, so we've launched a campaign to raise awareness of the life-saving research in our region.

The campaign kicks off with an event at Manchester Spinningfields on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th February followed by Liverpool One the next week, where we'll be taking over a prominent walkway, branding the area with lyrics made famous by Liverpool and Manchester based musicians. 

Keep an eye out for us across the North West and North Wales on busses, billboards and on social media! If you spot us, don't forget to like, share and tag @northwestcancer #ourregionourwords 

There will be an answer...
