Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month
Sept 2015 was Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month and there was some excellent campaigns running. If you have an Instagram account you may have come across the hashtag #ladygardencampaign, which was a partnership between Top Shop and the Gynaecological Cancer Fund, a new charity with monies going to support research at the Royal Marsden.
The Campaign received a lot of celebrity backing with the likes of Ellie Goulding and Elisabeth Hurley donning jumpers with ‘Lady Garden’ boldly emblazoned on the front. And the Duchess of York, Fergie lending her support at a Lady Garden Luncheon.
The main aim of the campaign hopes to encourage woman to talk more about their bits and become aware of what the symptoms of Gynaecological Cancer are. Unlike Breast Cancer and Skin cancer, where physical changes can be detected; lumps, dimples, discharge, change in moles etc, many of us are not aware of what to watch out for when it comes to the Big 5 Gynaecological Cancers.

I thought I would take the opportunity via this Flower Competition to remind my lady friends how important it is to attend regular Cervical Screenings. It’s not the most pleasant thing in the world, and I can think of a zillion other things I’d rather do, but early detection is the key to successful treatment. Most woman don’t get screened before it’s too late and are not diagnosed till stage 4. With cancer there is no stage 5. 50 Woman a day in the UK are diagnosed with some form of Gynaecological Cancer.
‘too busy to attend her screening and now admits that not going for her smear test is one of her biggest regrets.’ Jenny Croston a 38 year old mother of two
Hopefully this prompts at least one of you to book your screening today.
