HAVE YOUR SAY IN THE DIRECTION OF WOMB CANCER RESEARCH
A national group of researchers, medical bodies and charities, led by The University of Manchester is looking for help in setting the top priorities for fighting womb cancer, with a survey launched on 23 March 2015.
The Womb Cancer Alliance, a consortium of 12 leading organisations including Wellbeing of Women, is surveying women at risk, patients, family members and healthcare workers to find the best ways to direct research funds into the fourth most common cancer affecting British women.
Dr Emma Crosbie from the alliance said: "The more responses we get to this survey, the stronger our mandate will be to secure funds for research. This could make a real
difference in saving lives for a few minutes of someone's time."
