About the Spotlight Awards
The inaugural Spotlight Awards by Live Better With celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people, products, and services in the cancer community. Nominated by the public, the winners will be from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the world.
Why are we doing it?
We want to celebrate the successes and achievements of everyone in the cancer community who has demonstrated a passion and a commitment to overcoming obstacles and helping others.
What are the categories?
We'll be selecting FIVE Remarkable Person winners. You can nominate anyone of any age from anywhere in the world for this category. It may be for a single act of incredible courage, a long-lasting battle against the odds, or for inspirational campaigning. Whether it is someone who has devoted their time to volunteering, someone who has helped the local community, someone who has cared for others, or just someone who is uplifting and makes a difference to your life – nominate them today and help to recognise what they do.
Have you read a book that's changed the way you think about cancer? Whether it's your experience or that of a loved one, reading can help us to process complex situations. We're proud to carry a range of fabulous books by several different authors; each with a unique perspective on the cancer experience. If there's a book that's made a difference to you, we'd love to know about it! We'll be selecting ONE book as the winner. You can nominate any book (of any length, language, or cancer topic).
Many cancer patients tell us that it's helpful to read about each other's stories. Knowing you're not the only one to experience cancer is reassuring, and there's nothing quite as comforting as hearing from someone who just gets it. If you've found comfort in the stories of others, or have a space that you rely on for candid, practical advice, submit a nomination and help to help other patients just like you. We'll be selecting ONE winner for the Best Cancer Blogger award.
Best Support Group
Do you have a group that's helped you through difficult times? Have you discovered a whole new set of friends since your diagnosis, who know what you're going through? Whether they're in your local clinic, round your kitchen table, or in an online forum, we want to give your support group a shout out! We'll select ONE group to win the Best Cancer Support Group award.
Charities, companies, even apps that you've found particularly handy - we want to hear about all the services out there doing great things for people with cancer. Let us know which service you think deserves a pat on the back, and we'll select one service to win our Best Cancer Service award.
We're proud of all the products we stock here at Live Better With, but we want to know which ones you really rate. From the one lotion that sorted your itchy skin, to your all-time favourite headwear, we'll be selecting a winner in each of the following categories:
Mind and brain
Our winners will be chosen from public nominations and stories of remarkable individuals discovered by the Live Better With team.
They will then be whittled down to a shortlist. Winners will then be selected by our wonderful panel of judges, including:
Jane Devonshire - winner of Masterchef UK
Liz O'Riordan - breast surgeon (with breast cancer)
Dr Jimmy Kwok - author of Yoga for Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors
Sophie Sabbage - speaker, facilitator and author of The Cancer Whisperer
