Cervical Cancer Week! #SmearForSmear 2017

Join jostrust.org.uk this Cervical Cancer Prevention week (22th – 28th January) and share #SmearForSmear to raise awareness of the importance of smear tests in preventing cervical cancer.

Every year in the UK, around 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under.

The facts

  • Every day in the UK 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer
  • 3 women lose their lives from the disease every day
  • Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35
  • 75% of cervical cancers are prevented by cervical screening (smear tests)
  • However 1 in 4 women do not attend this potentially life-saving test

Read personal stories from women affected by cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer, their loved ones, volunteers and fundraisers.

Please visit the Jo’s Trust for more information on Cervical Cancer Week.

If you have recently been diagnosed with Cervical Cancer or undergoing treatment and are suffering with mobility, walking or lifting issues (common whilst having treatment for cervical cancer) then do take a look at our More Than Mobility website for the latest mobility, walking and daily living aids.

Best Wishes
