Lippy and loud...about gynae cancers...
PCOS Vitality are super excited, once again, to support the yearly Eve Appeal get lippy campaign. Let’s all get lippy and loud about gynaecological cancers throughout May. The campaign aims to end the culture of shame and stigma surrounding gynae health. Top brands are donating 10% of sales to help fund vital services including their AskEve service which has been vital in supporting some of our members with PCOS in the past for which we are immensely grateful. PCOS is associated with an increased risk of Endometrial Cancer or Womb Cancer as it is more commonly known. Endometrial cancer is the most common gynaecological malignancy and having PCOS convers a 9% lifetime risk of developing it. Furthermore, approximately a third of all endometrial cancers are attributable to having obesity (Njoku et al., 2019). So let’s lend our support to this fantastic and vital service by buying a lippy and getting loud about gynae cancers too. Join in the fun and raise some funds by visiting www.getlippy.org.uk
Air kisses from all of us at PCOS Vitality! xxxxx
