We found out that WCSUK has been nominated for an award for the best Facebook presence in the Health Activist Awards run by WEGO Health, a platform for health advocates to foster new relationships, gain access to helpful resources, and to grow their communities.
Fantastic that someone (we were nominated anonymously apparently!) thought that WCSUK deserved to be recognised for the work we do. Thank you whoever you are!
You can endorse our nomination here https://awards.wegohealth.com/nominees/womb-cancer-support-uk-1525 by clicking on the purple bar under the ribbon! Please share the link around as it would be lovely to think we might stand a chance of winning this award. It would help us be seen by so many women and some of them might need some help and support.
My local paper even reported on the nomination on their website http://www.buteman.co.uk/news/health/cancer-support-group-from-bute-nominated-for-award-1-3260913
Since WCSUK started back in April 2011, the private chat group has grown to over 100 women who support each other through the tough times, and are welcoming and supportive to all new ladies who join the group.
However, WCSUK is more that just the private chat group. The main FB page https://www.facebook.com/WombCancerSupportUK is the focus of what we do.
From here we share information; raise awareness and network with other organisations.
There are now over 840 on the page and the numbers are growing all the time.
Hopefully the exposure WCSUK gains from this nomination means that we can reach even more women who are going through a womb cancer diagnosis.
With your help as well, we can say that "No one fights alone".
