Disruptor London 👄 Get Lippy With the Eve AppealHelp us raise awareness about gynaecological cancers and fund scientific research4 min read6 May 2023 (Updated: 12 May 2023)
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.
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.
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 efforts to raise awareness, The Eve Appeal has established partnerships with other organisations to reach a wider audience and increase its impact. This is where their Get Lippy campaigns aim to break down the stigma and taboo surrounding gynaecological health by encouraging women to talk openly and honestly about their bodies and any concerns they may have. This year's campaign encourages women to “get lippy” by speaking up about gynaecological health and to feel empowered to take control of their health. The Get Lippy campaign also aims to raise funds for The Eve Appeal's research and educational programs.
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!
“The Get Lippy campaign is challenging the taboos that surround gynaecological health and making a real difference in getting information out to an audience who want to look after their wellbeing. Beauty brands are a powerful force for change and can be a force for good, the brands involved are doing a brilliant thing and the families of the future will thank them.” says Caroline Neville, President of Cosmetic Executive 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.
All Thanks to Your Generosity
The Get Lippy campaign is a powerful initiative that aims to raise awareness of gynaecological cancers and empower women to take control of their health. By breaking down taboos and encouraging open conversation, the campaign has the potential to make a real difference in the fight against these types of cancers.
The Eve Appeal is a vital charity that is making a real difference in the fight against gynaecological cancers. The charity's commitment to raising awareness, funding research, and supporting patients and their families has already led to significant progress in this area. However, there is still much work to be done, and continued support for the Eve Appeal is essential if we are to find a cure for these devastating diseases.
Please join us at our event, get involved and support beauty brands like us that are trying to make a difference in an often neglected area of women's health.
