The Eve Appeal - A Charity we help
Founded in 2002, The Eve Appeal is the only gynaecological cancer research charity in the UK, raising vital funds and awareness into all five gynaecological cancers: womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal.
Every day in the UK 55 women are diagnosed with one of these cancers and 21 women will die – worldwide that’s 500,000 each year dying from one of these cancers, just 28,000 fewer than from breast cancer. Despite these shocking statistics awareness of gynaecological cancer is low and it is not a well-funded cause.
The Eve Appeal is determined to change these statistics by raising funds towards better detection and improved treatment of these cancers to try and save women’s lives. They fund world-class research at the Department of Women’s Health at University College London.
