I'm so excited to announce that in September I will be launching a new collection in partnership with The Eve Appeal. After listening to an interview with Karen Hobbs, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at aged just 24, on Cherry Healey's 'Letters To My Fanny' Podcast. I found myself wanting to find out more.
Every day 58 women are diagnosed with a a gynaecological cancer and of those, 21 Mothers/Daughters/Sisters/Aunties will die! This really shocked me, I had put off having a smear test until after my first child and looking back, at age 29 this was pretty silly of me! My reason for putting it off, embarrassment? Naivety of fully understanding what was being tested? Laziness? I'm not really sure, things could have been very different if abnormalities had been found and could have potentially been discovered earlier.
The thought behind my new collection is trying to get more women (and men too) to talk more openly about gynae cancers and the importance of going to that smear test - and NOT putting it off!
Are you in Cardiff? I am hosting a fundraising event on Friday 25th August 2017 to raise money and awareness for gynae cancers. Lots of fun activities planned for the evening, complimentary glass of bubbly and a special tasty treat! To buy tickets visit Bethan Kate's Tearoom, Pentyrch or contact me via elizaelizauk.com or twitter/instagram/facebook
