There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval – but many women are unaware of this fact. In the UK alone, there are over 21,000 women who are sadly given the news that they’ve been diagnosed with a form of gynaecological cancer. This equates to 58 women being diagnosed, and sadly, 21 women losing their battle each day.
The Eve Appeal is the only UK national charity raising awareness and funding research in the five gynaecological cancers. It was set up to save women’s lives by funding groundbreaking research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for these women-only cancers. Our vision is simple: a future where fewer women develop and more women survive gynaecological cancers. A unique and often rewarding place to work, we are a small, yet enthusiastic and dedicated team alongside the amazing women we support.
