Well, it's that time of year again. September is womb cancer awareness month so today see's the start of a month long campaign to get the word out about womb cancer and try and raise as much awareness as possible.
The 2014 campaign will be the 4th that we have done and although we raise awareness throughout the year, it's always good to have a dedicated campaign to really focus on the issue and spread as awareness
Most of our awareness raising is done via social media, and I make good use of this as I am always "tweeting" via our twitter feed and posting on the Facebook page This year I am also going to give Pinterest a go to see if that is a suitable platform for raising awareness. Check out my womb cancer awareness board there.
There are also events happening in the "real world" to help raise awareness.
After our successful meet up in Birmingham last year we are going back with our peach knickers again. We'll be in Victoria Square in Birmingham City Centre on Sat 6th Sept - you can find out more here
A lovely lady in Nottingham is doing a Posh Peach Pedi &/or Manicure on Saturday 20th September, which is of course International Womb Cancer Awareness Day. You can find more details here
Another lovely lady, who makes wonderful candles has offered to make some peach candles for us so pop over to her Facebook page here and say that Kaz has sent you!!
There is also an online auction that I am running at the end of September to help raise funds for the research project that Dr Ellis is doing at Hammersmith Hospital. You can find out more about that here There will be lots of amazing items up for grabs there so please make sure that you join in and help us raise lots of money for the research project.
Hopefully there will be other events happening throughout the month - if you are planning anything then please let me know.
So, here's to another successful womb cancer awareness campaign. Help us spread the word and talk about womb cancer. Remember that many of us that have been diagnosed had never heard of it before we were given that diagnosis so raising awareness is vital
