The Eve Appeal funds research to seek improved methods of early detection, test screening methods and potentially prevent gynaecological cancer from developing. 21 women every day will lose their battle with one of the five gynaecological cancers.
For women with ovarian cancer, the current situation is grim. One third of women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer at A&E. By this time they are in crippling pain. By this time the cancer is so advanced that it has reached stage 4. There is no stage 5.
Shockingly only 3% of women are confident of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
We don’t think that this is good enough and as a woman, neither should you.
This March we are asking you to Make Time for Tea. Invite your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours around for a slice of cake and a cup of tea. Hold a raffle, ask for donations and share with them our literature on ovarian cancer.
You can arm the women that you love with knowledge that could save their lives. Even better than that, the funds that you raise will help us to continue our ambitious research programme, that aims to use samples that would have otherwise been wasted from a cervical screening test to screen for further cancers, including ovarian and womb.
