I invite you to sign the STOP Cervical Cancer Petition

Almost every case of cervical cancer could be prevented if regular screening were conducted and the prevalence of human papillomavirus were controlled. Currently, cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women in Europe, including Lithuania. This disease can also develop among young women, mostly within the age range of 30-60. Unfortunately, most of the women in Europe today still do not have access to effective screening and prevention programs. The STOP Cervical Cancer Petition will help to raise the priority of screening across Europe, so please add your name and help to make it a success.

Just go to www.CervicalCancerPetition.eu sign the Petition and send this email to your friends.
If you are a woman of 25 years of age, were you encouraged by your family doctor to undergo screening for cervical cancer and take part in the state reimbursement screening program? Your clinic gynaecologist will examine you – come to the clinics. Please note that screening for cervical cancer is FREE (for women from 25 to 60 years).

We have collected 800,000 signatures on the Petition so far. European Cervical Cancer Association aims at collecting one million signatures before the European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (23-29 January 2011) and then the petition is to be delivered to the European Commission and the European Parliament.
