#SmearForSmear - Please help us spread the word!

Hi Everyone

As you will all know, Cervical Cancer Prevention Week started yesterday and we need your help to raise awareness.

20% of eligible UK women don't attend their smear test, rising to 33% of 25-29 year olds and, worryingly, the numbers being diagnosed with cervical cancer are going up. As we all know here on the forum, a cervical cancer diagnosis is so tough so let's try and stop as many women as possible from having to go through this devastating disease.  

This is why we're asking you to put on your favourite lipstick, smear it across your face, take a selfie, then share it on social media using the #SmearForSmear hashtag. Please nominate your friends to do the same and remind them about the importance of attending their smear test! (the hashtag and the nominations are really important to include).


To find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved please visit our page http://www.jostrust.org.uk/smearforsmear/


The Jo's team have all done their smear selfies to raise awareness of the importance of screening - please help us and do yours!


Best wishes

Rebecca Kiss
