Click and sign and support the campaign for Cervical Cancer Screening

This is one of my hobby horses (oh yeah I have many) but Ireland's lack of a free national cervical screening programme is putting women's lives at risk. The Irish Cancer Society are currently campaigning for such a service and I will leave it their appeal to tell you what you should do if you wish to support the campaign. (and please spread the word and get all family members involved in supporting it) Thanks.



Ireland has one of the highest rates of cervical cancer in Europe and while we know screening saves lives, Ireland has no national screening programme. The Irish Cancer Society is lobbying Government to urgently implement a free nationwide screening programme for cervical cancer. CLICK HERE to support our campaign. In the meantime, [women] please visit your GP or family planning centre for a regular smear test, if you're aged 25 years or more. Screening detects cells in the cervix before they become cancerous or spread, and this allows for successful treatment. For further information on cervical smears and/or cervical cancer, call the National Cancer Helpline on Freefone 1800 200 700

Have checked it and It is working now but I do think it is slow to load - the applet that they use takes some time to kick in.
