Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) is a UK wide initiative lead by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. The week aims to highlight the importance of cervical screening (smear) and how attending a screening invitation can help to prevent cervical cancer. In the United Kingdom, 20% of women still do not attend their cervical screening and so raising public awareness of cervical cancer prevention is still a priority. Public knowledge and understanding of issues such as cervical screening, the causes of cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer and treatment is generally low.
Jo Cervical Cancer Trust look to provide comprehensive, easy to understand information about cervical cancer, cervical abnormalities and their subsequent treatments. They also have an area for you to contact our panel of medical experts. It helps to be able to access information you can trust when questions come to mind. http://www.jostrust.org.uk/about-jo-trust
During the week of 10th – 16th June they will be holding their annual 5k sponsored walk Walk for Fun.
Walk for Fun is Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust’s annual 5k sponsored walk. It is a great way to get people together to increase the national profile of cervical cancer, raise funds for Jo’s, but just as importantly to celebrate life and to remember all those who have lost their battle with cervical cancer.
Why not get involved with a group of young people and attend the Cardiff Walk for Fun.
WALK FOR FUN is being held at :
Roath Park, Cardiff CF23 5PG
Time: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm
Date: Saturday 16 June
