Hoping to decrease cervical cancer rates, supermodel Elle Macpherson is backing a charity campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
Macpherson is working with Wellbeing of Women, which funds screenings and vaccinations for females in the United Kingdom.
Urging women to regularly visit their doctors for health check, she said, “Many women don’t take time out to be checked routinely, sometimes choosing to ignore it or worry about being checked. It’s easy to think ‘It won’t happen to me,’ or ‘I don’t want to know what’s going on.’ The fact is, I always feel better after going to see the doctor for my regular checks. I know that I’m okay and that I’ve been responsible and faced my fears. Please get checked, ladies.”
