Campaign aims to save the lives of women who die unnecessarily from cervical cancer

First published in News

A CAMPAIGN that started last month aims to save the lives of women who die unnecessarily from cervical cancer.

Cervical Screening Awareness Week hopes to reach out to the 20% of women that do not go to screenings when invited.

More than 3,000 women are diagnosed with the disease each year - but around a fifth of women fail to attend screenings.

Robert Marsh is CEO of The Eve Appeal - a charity that funds cancer research. He said: “The earlier cervical cancer is diagnosed, the better the outcome will be. Screening is free and can save your life.”
