Finally an article written by someone who knew what she was talking about and someone who wasn't going to try and blame women who had womb cancer for somehow bringing it on themselves by being fat and lazy, as other articles have done in the past.
The article appeared in The Guardian on Monday 22nd Sept (on the website the evening before) and in it, the writer of the piece, Daloni Carlise, explained that even though, as a journalist who writes about health matters for a living, she had never heard of womb cancer before she was diagnosed.
In her article she tells of 2 women of different ages, one just 20 and the other in her 50's who both have womb cancer. She also speaks to a consultant in clinical oncology at the Royal Marsden hospital who says that there needs to be more awareness. That's one comment that I won't disagree with.

Hopefully this article won't be the last of its kind - womb cancer and the women who are diagnosed deserve better media coverage than they have had in the past.
