Guest edited by Sarah Brown, our patron.
Sarah talks to Elle McPherson – The Body – about keeping fit, the importance of health checks and how you need to adapt to the changing needs of your body and lifestyle as you get older.
The issue focuses once again on women’s health issues and specifically on gynaecological cancers. Gynaecological cancer kills 140 women a week in the UK.
The issue also features celebrity WoW team marathon runner Elen Rivas – you can sponsor our team, which also includes South Pole challenge celebrity – Ed Coats, and find out more about the rest of the team at our ‘Support Your Local Runner’ page
or just go directly to www.justgiving.com/wellbeing-of-women
to make your sponsorship pledge.
If you are motivated to take up a challenge yourself and help beat gynaecological cancer why not join our Hike for Hope
in November 2010 – these treks are organised joinly with Prostate UK to raise funds to fight prostate and gynaecological cancer –
The funds raised from the previous Hike for Hopes mean that this year we were able to offer double the normal funding for gynae cancer projects:
We have been able to continue to fund Dr Jo Morrison in Oxford in her work on Ovarian Cancer: download a pdf on this here
as well as Dr Nicholas Orsi for his work on Endometrial Cancer: download a pdf on this here
