Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust



Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer amongst young women in the UK and Europe. Nearly 3 women a day in the UK will die from cervical cancer whilst each year around 2,800 women are newly diagnosed.  In addition, some 300,000 women a year are told they may have a cervical abnormality that might require treatment.   Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is the UK’s only charity dedicated to women, their families and friends affected by cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer.  The charity was established in 1999 by James Maxwell following the death of his wife Jo, (aged 40), from cervical cancer. We are there 24 hours a day offering a range of support including:
