*PLEASE READ ON FOR MY REASONS FOR DOING THIS..
Every single one of us has a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Wife, Daughter, friend who will, at some stage in their lives be affected by gynaecological issues. My own life and that of my family have been deeply affected by Gynaecological Cancer for which the outcome would be very different if it was not for the outstanding work carried out by the Liverpool Women’s Hospital Gynaecology Oncology team, which is why I am asking for your support in my attempt to raise funds to support the life-saving Trials in Cancer Research carried out there.
Please help with whatever you can afford to give, no matter how small, every penny counts!
Thank you very much!...
Please read on for Fact and Details provided by the Clinical Team :
Details about the Trials and life changing work carried out by the Liverpool Women's Hospital Gynaecology Oncology team...
Each year in the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed with some form of gynaecological cancer. This equates to 58 women receiving this life-changing news every day. Sadly 21 women will die from a gynaecological cancer every single day, yet still Gynaecological Cancer receives little publicity.
There are five Gynaecological Cancers ( Ovarian, Womb, Vaginal, Vulva ) but awareness levels of these cancers is very low.
As with many cancers the signs and symptoms often get missed during our busy daily lives. Many of the tell tale signs are things women
experience from time to time such as bloating and irregular bleeding are often put down to stress, menopause or just general ‘women’s problems’ so are often left unchecked. As we all know, catching signs early on is essential to avoid further spread and potential recovery.
Liverpool Women’s Hospital is the regional Gynaecological Surgical Cancer Centre in Merseyside and Cheshire. The multi-disciplinary team is made up of Surgeons, Medical and Clinical Oncologists, Palliative Care Consultants, Radiologists, Pathologists, Clinical Nurse Specialists, and Research Nurses. There is a weekly meeting held were every women is discussed to see if they are eligible for a Clinical Trial, and a personalised plan of care proposed.
The team is currently involved in many National Clinical Trials, in relation to chemotherapy treatments, surgery, imaging (scanning techniques) and the ‘100,000 Genomes Project.’ https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/the-100000-genomes-project/
The team is keen to continue its involvement in research, as it can and does positively make a difference to the lives of the women it treats, whether that be a new treatment, treatments that provide fewer side effects from current treatment or improvements to provide a better quality of life.
Thank you for reading… Your help and support will make all the difference in helping continue to improve and save the lives of our loved ones.
Thank you very much.
