. How you can help WCSUK raise awareness.
Sadly womb cancer doesn't get anywhere near as much media attention as breast, lung or bowel cancer yet it is the 4th most common cancer amongst women in the UK, after those 3 (in that order)
There is no national womb cancer awareness campaign so.
for over 11 years now, WCSUK has been working hard to raise awareness of womb cancer by doing what we can to share information about the signs and symptoms and the risk factors to be aware of.
WCSUK is a small not for profit organisation and we rely on our supporters and likers to help us spread the word.
There are many ways that you can help us raise awareness of womb cancer.
1. Share the link to the Facebook page and share our comments.
2. Share the link to the website
3. Watch and share the video's on our Youtube channel
4. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram and help spread the word!
5. Distribute some of our business cards at your next appointment. They are great to hand out to your CNS; Macmillan nurse; GP; Consultant etc. Just email me your address details to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll pop some in the post to you.
We also have awareness leaflets that explain the signs and symptoms of womb cancer and are great for GP surgeries, clinics, etc.
6. Do you know anywhere that would display one of our leaflets? Ask at your local health centre, surgery, clinic, library, gym etc. If you email me your address I will send you some.
7. Organise an awareness event - maybe a coffee morning or a stall at a local health event or in your library.
8. If you are thinking of doing CRUK Race for Life then dress in peach (womb cancer awareness colour) it will raise awareness and get people interested.
9. If you have been diagnosed would you be prepared to share your story to help raise awareness? You could do a guest blog post for the website. Email me at email@example.com for more details.
10. If you have any media contacts then please get in touch or maybe you would consider telling your story to your local paper, they like to share local stories about local people..
11. If you are good at graphic design then you could help us produce some promotional stuff. Again please get in touch.
12. If you are thinking of doing some fundraising then please consider raising funds for Peaches Womb Cancer Trust
13. If you can think of anything else then get in touch. Use the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org
