Awareness Months June 2017
#MyEyesSay - Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month
"If your eyes were all you could move, what would you say with them?"
That is the question we are asking as we launch this year’s Awareness Month campaign – #MyEyesSay.
Every year, beginning June 1 and running throughout the month, the Association raises awareness by using the stories of real people whose lives have been shattered by MND. This year, we’ll be sharing the experiences of Gemma and Dave who are living with the disease, and Vivienne, whose husband Tony died in 2016.

Awareness Weeks June 2017
Cervical Screening Awareness Week (12th - 16th June)
Every year in the UK, around 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under.
Cervical cancer is not thought to be hereditary. In 99.7% of cases, cervical cancers are caused by persistent infections with a virus called high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a very common virus transmitted through skin to skin contact in the genital area. Around four out of five sexually active adults (80%) will be infected with some type of HPV in their lives. However, for the majority of women this will not result in cervical cancer. While HPV infection is common, cervical cancer is rare.
