Jo's cervical cancer trust smear for smear campaign

Almost half a million young women aged 25-29 did not attend cervical screening last year, Cervical Cancer Prevention Week aims to change this.

Take part in the #SmearForSmear campaign by sharing a selfie (as above) to raise awareness of the importance of smear tests in preventing cervical cancer.

The facts

  • Every day in the UK 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer
  • 3 women lose their lives from the disease every day
  • Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35
  • 75% of cervical cancers are prevented by cervical screening (smear tests)
  • However 1 in 4 women do not attend this potentially life-saving test
