Seema supports Smear for Smear campaign

Seema Kennedy, Member of Parliament for South Ribble supports Smear for Smear campaign

Smear for Smear is this year’s campaign by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust to encourage women to get a smear test. Due to the small number of women getting smear tests, Smear for Smear aims to increase that number to help women detect and prevent cervical cancers. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under and each year in the UK, around 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Commenting on the campaign, Seema noted: “I am very happy to support Smear for Smear and help raise awareness on such an important and life-changing test. The number of people going for smear tests is lower than ever with 1 in 4 women not attending. Smear tests are not easy for everyone, but they prevent cervical cancer. I encourage all women in South Ribble to book their appointment today.”
