Come to a support event to meet other people who have had a cervical cancer diagnosis.
Journalist and broadcaster Mariella Frostrup will be presenting our Appeal on Radio 4 this Sunday. You can hear it live:
While we were recording the Appeal Mariella told us why she volunteered to present our Appeal:
Liz was just 29 when she was told she had cervical cancer.
She was a new mum and terrified that she would leave her 8 month old daughter without a mother. Her own parents were fearful they would outlive their own child. She faced gruelling treatment but cancer doesn’t end when treatment does and, despite being in remission, her life is now very different to the one she hoped for. Still young, she is dealing with the loss of her fertility while watching her friends build their families. Her plans of a big family gone. She will endure the difficult symptoms of early menopause with her skin, hair and mood all affected. And then there’s the daily fear of her cancer returning.
The HPV vaccination and cervical screening programmes can prevent cervical cancer from developing, but lack of information, support, and unequal access mean many don’t take up these potentially life-saving opportunities. Through our campaigns and education programmes, we are working hard to change this. We want to make cervical cancer a disease of the past and your support will help us get there.
Our support services are there at every step. For those with questions about preventing the disease, those experiencing anxiety around screening results and for women like Liz, living with and beyond cancer.
By calling the Helpline Liz was able to voice her fears and get the answers she needed. Most importantly she spoke to someone who understood.
Having someone to talk to was a lifeline for Liz and your donation can help fund this vital service. Just £16 funds a Helpline call providing support when someone needs it the most. By giving a gift today you can help fund this vital service.
