Womb Cancer Alliance has been busy setting the priorities for future womb cancer research with the help of womb cancer patients and doctors and other medical staff who treat womb cancer patients. They held a widespread consultation early in 2015 on where people wanted to see research and ended the year by picking the top 10 that will hopefully be where the new research into womb cancer happens. This is exciting news and hopefully means that womb cancer will get more media attention and money spent on it.
During the September awareness campaign there were a few ladies who had articles printed in their local papers around the UK which helped to spread the word about womb cancer. We also had our Big Day out in Birmingham again and managed to get lots of social media exposure.
It’s frustrating that things are not moving faster but I guess I’m just impatient and want as many women as possible to “Be Womb Aware” and not end up hearing those dreadful words “I’m sorry but you have cancer”.
11th April 2016 marks our 5th Birthday and we still have so much to achieve but as this year comes to an end we can all look back and feel proud of what has been achieved.
There are many people who are helping to raise awareness and spread the word about womb cancer and many others who support what we are doing, and I thank each and every one of them.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year and all the best for 2016.
