99.8% of cervical cancer is preventable and yet 9 women are diagnosed every day in the UK (Cancer Research UK). Through talks and open discussion, our expert speakers will debunk the myths surrounding the cervix and down-there healthcare. They will guide you through a smear test to help you understand it and demonstrate why knowing your body is so important. Bell House will host both medical professionals and cancer survivors on the subject of cervical cancer during Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month. Cervical cancer, like all cancers, affects more than just those diagnosed so we encourage you to bring your male friends, family and loved ones too — especially now that boys are being offered the HPV vaccine at school too.
With better education on our bodies, we can wipe out cervical cancer for good.
This event is free - please register your interest by signing up for tickets. Refreshments will be available between talks and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and grab some information leaflets.
