The Eve Ap­peal is a UK-based char­i­ty that was found­ed in 2002 by a group of women who had all been af­fect­ed by gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers in some way, ei­ther through per­son­al ex­pe­ri­ence or through the ex­pe­ri­ence of a loved one. They rec­og­nised the need for in­creased re­search into these types of can­cers and the need for greater aware­ness among the pub­lic.

Rais­ing Aware­ness

The five main types of gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers are womb, ovar­i­an, cer­vi­cal, vul­val and vagi­nal. These can­cers can be dif­fi­cult to de­tect and are of­ten di­ag­nosed at a late stage, mak­ing them more dif­fi­cult to treat. The Eve Ap­peal is work­ing to change this by rais­ing aware­ness of the signs and symp­toms of these can­cers and en­cour­ag­ing women to seek med­ical at­ten­tion if they no­tice any un­usu­al symp­toms. A lot of ef­fort goes into ed­u­cating and in­forming women about the signs and symp­toms of gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers, as well as pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on pre­ven­tion and ear­ly de­tec­tion.

Can­cer Re­search

The char­i­ty also funds re­search into new treat­ments for gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers and sup­ports the de­vel­op­ment of new screen­ing meth­ods that could im­prove ear­ly de­tec­tion rates. Re­search fund­ed to date has made a great im­pact in un­der­stand­ing the ge­net­ic and en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors that con­tribute to the de­vel­op­ment of these can­cers.

The char­i­ty has helped to fund the de­vel­op­ment of new treat­ments, in­clud­ing tar­get­ed ther­a­pies that can im­prove out­comes for pa­tients with ad­vanced-stage can­cers. The char­i­ty has also sup­port­ed the de­vel­op­ment of new screen­ing meth­ods, in­clud­ing a test for ovar­i­an can­cer that is cur­rent­ly be­ing tri­alled in the UK.

Let's Get Lip­py!

As part of their ef¬≠forts to raise aware¬≠ness, The Eve Ap¬≠peal has es¬≠tab¬≠lished part¬≠ner¬≠ships with oth¬≠er or¬≠ga¬≠ni¬≠sa¬≠tions to reach a wider au¬≠di¬≠ence and in¬≠crease its im¬≠pact. This is where their Get Lip¬≠py cam¬≠paigns aim to break down the stig¬≠ma and taboo sur¬≠round¬≠ing gy¬≠nae¬≠co¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal health by en¬≠cour¬≠ag¬≠ing women to talk open¬≠ly and hon¬≠est¬≠ly about their bod¬≠ies and any con¬≠cerns they may have. This year's cam¬≠paign en¬≠cour¬≠ages women to ‚Äúget lip¬≠py‚ÄĚ by speak¬≠ing up about gy¬≠nae¬≠co¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal health and to feel em¬≠pow¬≠ered to take con¬≠trol of their health. The Get Lip¬≠py cam¬≠paign also aims to raise funds for The Eve Ap¬≠peal's re¬≠search and ed¬≠u¬≠ca¬≠tion¬≠al pro¬≠grams.

Every May, the cam­paign is sup­port­ed by unit­ing some of the biggest names in health and beau­ty like Tesco, Har­vey Nichols, and CEW UK (Cos­met­ic Ex­ec­u­tive Women). And this year, Dis­rup­tor Lon­don is join­ing them to make the 2023 cam­paign big­ger and bet­ter!

‚ÄúThe Get Lip¬≠py cam¬≠paign is chal¬≠leng¬≠ing the taboos that sur¬≠round gy¬≠nae¬≠co¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal health and mak¬≠ing a real dif¬≠fer¬≠ence in get¬≠ting in¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠tion out to an au¬≠di¬≠ence who want to look af¬≠ter their well¬≠be¬≠ing. Beau¬≠ty brands are a pow¬≠er¬≠ful force for change and can be a force for good, the brands in¬≠volved are do¬≠ing a bril¬≠liant thing and the fam¬≠i¬≠lies of the fu¬≠ture will thank them.‚ÄĚ says Car¬≠o¬≠line Neville, Pres¬≠i¬≠dent of Cos¬≠met¬≠ic Ex¬≠ec¬≠u¬≠tive Women.

Through­out the cam­paign, par­tic­i­pat­ing brands do­nate a por­tion of their prof­its to the char­i­ty, al­low­ing The Eve Ap­peal to con­tin­ue its vi­tal work in the fight against gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers.

In ad­di­tion to the sale of Get Lip­py Prod­ucts , the Get Lip­py cam­paign also fea­tures a range of events and ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to raise aware­ness of gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers and the im­por­tance of ear­ly de­tec­tion. These events in­clude work­shops, talks, and fundrais­ing events, all of which aim to bring peo­ple to­geth­er in sup­port of this im­por­tant cause.

This year in their de­but year Dis­rup­tor Lon­don has com­mit­ted to do­nat­ing 10% of all prod­uct sales to raise aware­ness of the five gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers and en­cour­age every­one to Get Lip­py and Loud by open­ing up life-sav­ing con­ver­sa­tion with an ex­clu­sive event host­ed in part­ner­ship with In­de­pen­dent De­sign­er Con­cept Store Lone De­sign Club on 30th May 2023. Please join us on this free event with a full dis­cus­sion pan­el and drinks at West­field Shop­ping Cen­ter in Lon­don.
