Gynae conversation starters! Order your badges today here!
In the UK, 21,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer each year. That is 58 women being diagnosed each and every day, and sadly, 21 of these women will die. That’s far too many mothers, wives, daughters, friends and colleagues being affected by a gynaecological cancer.
Awareness that these cancers is alarmingly low. So much so, we’re often told by women that the first time they’ve heard of a gynae cancer is when they’re sat in a white consulting room being told that they’ve got one.
This is why we’re committed to raising much-needed awareness about the little-known and little-talked about gynae cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal.
What will really make a difference to early diagnosis is women knowing the signs and symptoms. To help this happen, we need to have to change the conversation around gynae health and start to have normal conversations about periods, menopause, cervical screening tests and our anatomy. You can help #TeamEve break down the barriers, squash the stigma and smash the taboos that often stop women talking about gynae health issues by wearing one of our conversation-starter awareness badges: Bloody Brilliant / V is for… / Womb Warrior / Team Eve
