Spread your legs and spread the word to stop the spread of cancer. Get the cervical screening age down to 18 with some help from the unicorns.
London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2013 -- Effi Mai has a company called ForrReal. After being diagnosed with Cancer at seventeen, she decided to do something for others. So, five years later she told people that she has the disease and here she is. She has had two types of cancers, breast and cervical, which she is sure is the universe’s way of telling her to stop having sex. Now it’s time to share the knowledge and love and possibly prevent other girls from going through this.
ForrReal is a few things. First, it is an advice website for every woman. When I came out of the cancer closet my inbox started to fill with questions, inquiries, pictures of inspiring cats and all other fancy bits. I try and answer every email in detail, with dialogue, with humor.
Secondly, it is to let everyone know the real stuff about cancer. The effects of everything from beginning to end, the things that doctors don’t have the time to tell and the stuff that will happen. How to check breasts, how a lump feels, how not to panic and how to cope with having to tell the loved ones are just tiny examples.
Thirdly, which is her biggest challenge, is that she wants to get the age of which a woman has a cervical screening test down to the age of eighteen and to have a smear every two years. Living in Wales at the time, Effi was lucky enough to get a screening done at twenty years and they caught it at stage two.
What Effi needs is money for funding of the actual company ForrReal, and money for Effi and team to live on while they do it. She is campaigning to raise £10,000 to help them as they become a full-fledged and self-sustaining business. Any amount would help them greatly to reach their goal and get the website, campaign, and everything else they can give out there.
