Get Lippy is back and we want everyone to join us and Get Lippy and Loud about gynae health because cancer is NOT on lockdown!
Eve research found that shockingly nearly half of young people would sit on key gynae cancer symptom, bleeding between periods, until after the coronavirus pandemic. We need to Get Lippy now more than ever to make sure everyone knows the key symptoms that need investigating, and what to do if they notice something abnormal for them.
Each May, The Eve Appeal unites some of the biggest names in beauty and retail – including lead partners Tesco and Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW), and a host of other partners – to smash taboos, speak openly about gynaecological health, and raise awareness of gynae cancers.
Since the start of the pandemic, our nurse-led information service, Ask Eve, has seen a 22% increase in calls, and every single person has mentioned coronavirus. People are concerned about their screening appointments being cancelled, about how their cancer care will change, and our survey found people would put off getting symptoms checked for fear of increasing the burden on our NHS.
So whether you can be affected by a gynaecological cancer, or you love someone who can, join us and Get Lippy to raise much-needed awareness and funds for our dedicated programmes, including Ask Eve.
