A free charity pop-up to educate visitors on the 5 gynaecological cancers and share life-saving advice this gynaecological cancer awareness month
The Lady Garden Foundation announced that as part of Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month in September, the charity will be hosting an educational pop-up at the Vagina Museum in London on 29th August.
The free exhibition is open between 10am-6pm and will be centred on raising awareness of the five gynaecological cancers and their symptoms. Close to 80% of women don’t even know there are five Gynae cancers. Representatives from the charity will be on site all day to chat to members of the public who have questions about all things #GynaeHealth.
The Lady Garden Foundation’s mission is that by 2030, every woman will know the signs and symptoms of the five gynaecological cancers; Ovarian, Cervical, Uterine, Vaginal and Vulval. 58 women are diagnosed and 21 die each day from a gynaecological cancer. Common symptoms include irregular bleeding, blood-stained or bad-smelling vaginal discharge, bloating and tiredness, to name a few. The charity pop-up is part of the Vagina Museum’s summer programme to raise awareness of the phenomenal work undertaken by charities and community groups, particularly those specialising in areas relating to the health and wellbeing of people with vaginas and vulvas.
Through events like the Vagina Museum pop-up, The Lady Garden Foundation wants to change how people talk about gynaecological cancers and raise funds to raise awareness and change the future of women’s health.
