The Eve Appeal is a registered charityworking hard to raise money to fund the world-class research programme at the Department of Women's Cancer based at University College London (UCL).
Major breakthroughs are already being achieved towards improving survival rates of women with gynaecological cancers through the Department's pioneering research into screening, early diagnosis and risk prediction. To build on these successes and save women's lives, raising urgent and on-going funds is critical. Promoting awareness is vital too. The Eve Appeal therefore disseminates information about the research we fund. We publicise - and provide information on - gynaecological cancers. We contribute to the development of policy and campaigns. And we work in partnership with others to improve the healthcare and support of women.
