Hi all don't forget jos cervical cancer smear awareness week started today.
They want you to put your make up on, smear your lippy and post to Facebook/ twitter with #smearforsmear @jotrust in your message and write something to spread awareness of the importance of smears. As a smearshirker who is being treated cos I bucked my ideas up and went I urge you to do this and nominate your friends.
I didn't mention my diagnosis just the importance of smears to 5,000 of us a year.
There is a text donation u can make too. I have had so much help just from reading the forums and the advice from the amazing women on here it's good to give a tiny bit back xx
however hope they also teach the nurse who gave me the most painful smear and made me a shirker a bit of training!!
I am most amazed at how many of my friends would rather douche themselves in ice water than talk ladybits in public! Ho hum, I figure if just one person goes out and gets a smear then we have done our work!!!
Ha ha! :-)
I don't have a camera nor a smartphone, and I don't have facebook / Twitter / Instagram either, so . . .
I put my lippy on, kissed my handbag mirror, smudged the kiss, put it facedown on my scanner, and uploaded the jpeg to www.polaroidblipfoto.com along with a link to the #SmearForSmear page :-) I hope it does some good :-)
Yowsers Tivoli that's dedication!
