Today i received my pack from Ovacome which consisted of posters, leaflets, brochures & some credit card sized cards explaining the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer.
I promptly went along to my doctors surgery and explained a little about the B.E.A.T campaign and also that i’d learnt yesterday at the Target Ovarian Cancer workshop from some of the ladies, that they’d been mis diagnosed with IBS. The nurse then informed me that she always keeps upto date with her smears so knows she’s fine! So i then informed her that smears do not detect Ovarian Cancer… and she’s a professional?
after leaving some of my goodies with her i nipped into the bank next door. After doing my business i asked if i could maybe leave some of the cards for the staff and was informed “No sorry, we’re not interested and arn’t allowed anything like that”.
I smiled sweetly and went into my local pharmacy who gladly took some cards and a poster too..
Jobs a good un but i couldn’t believe how thick some people are
