Breast Cancer Care has revealed its new ‘bucket list’ installation at the Labour Party Annual Conference.
The charity collaborated with 3D printing company my3Dtwin to create 3D models of five women with incurable secondary breast cancer. Each woman shares her personal bucket list through video in the installation, and MPs are also being invited to tell the charity what would be on their own bucket list.
The installation, which “showcases the experiences of this often forgotten group of patients to highlight the need for improved care and support”,will travel to the Labour, Conservative and Scottish National Party (SNP) conferences.
Campaigning for ‘vital improvements in care’
Danni Manzi, Head of Policy and Campaigns at Breast Cancer Care, said that the charity is “thrilled” to be launching its bucket list installation after working with my3Dtwin. She added that the charity is “extremely grateful” to them for donating the 3D models to the campaign.
“There is a misconception that breast cancer is ‘solved’. This emotive installation will help us engage with MPs as we campaign for vital improvements in care, so that everyone affected by secondary breast cancer gets the support they need from day one.”
A powerful installation
Elaine Lewis, Business development director at my3Dtwin, has said that the company is honoured to be part of this campaign.
“When we were approached to participate in this project we were delighted to offer our support and were moved by the message of the campaign,” she said.
“Seeing the ladies standing in their buckets and interacting with their my3Dtwin figures in their videos makes this a very powerful installation. Thank you to Breast Cancer Care for giving us the opportunity to play our part.”
