Harley Street Fertility Clinic (HSFC) is delighted to be donating £1,400 to The Eve Appeal as a result of offering ‘free’ consultations to patients on three consecutive Saturdays in December. HSFC provided the consultations in return for a minimum £50 charitable donation. The fundraising total has also been match-funded by the Clinic.
Dr Venkat, Director of HSFC says, “The Eve Appeal is a charity close to our hearts and here at HSFC we were delighted to be able to raise much-needed funds as part of our fundraising initiative in December.”
Athena Lamnisos, Chief Executive of The Eve Appeal, said: “Huge thanks to the Harley Street Fertility Clinic for their very generous donation of £1,400 to The Eve Appeal. It is our vision that through raising awareness of all five gynaecological cancers and the issues that surround a diagnosis, whilst also funding pioneering research into early detection and prevention, we can begin to make a difference. Through the kindness and support of the Harley Street Fertility Clinic we can continue to do so.”
Dr Venkat concludes; “I would strongly encourage women within the age range to attend all screening appointments. It really is vital to increase public awareness and make it easier for women to book their tests, including outside normal working hours. By attending a cervical screening, any early changes in the cervix can be treated quickly. If these are left, some changes could lead to cancerous cells which can adversely affect a women’s fertility in the future.”
