Our focus is on raising vital awareness to promote early diagnosis of the five gynaecological cancers; fund desperately needed research into their causes and treatments; provide local hospitals with vital surgical equipment; and to offer and facilitate peer support to women who are diagnosed.
The work undertaken by GRACE is plugging a gap for a desperately neglected area of cancer research. Every year one million women worldwide are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer – such as cervical or ovarian. They account for 10% of all cancers. In the UK alone, 18,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer every year.
GRACE is dedicated to research which will improve the treatment, recovery, and survival rates of women diagnosed in the future and are currently involved in several projects). These findings feed into the wider UK cancer network, helping to influence and shape the diagnosis and treatment of these women, both now and in the future.
