In June last year Eva first came to our medical centre. A 27yr. old lovely lady for a gynae check-up. Eva had never had a cervical smear test as she was in the process of moving to Spain when she was 25yrs. – the age that UK screening currently starts in the UK.
On examination it became apparent that ‘something was not right’ and investigations began immediately.
Regretfully the outcome for Eva was that despite a brave battle she did lose her life due to Cervical Cancer.
Damian, Eva’s husband says:
‘It always happens to someone else. You’re young, you’re fit and strong. You’ll be fine. At 28 years old, despite a brave battle the cancer won. Everyone who knew Eva loved her. The Eva Carter Cervical Cancer Awareness Fund has been set up to bring awareness to this terrible disease, that, with early detection can be cured.
Eva, as a Registered Nurse and a national carer can continue to care and her name can live on. Please help her to help you.
Due to the help and generosity of all the Vincent’s Corner pub staff and customers, Lee and Helen of the Pig & Whistle in the old town of Benidorm, friends and family of Eva, there is money raised to make a difference and hopefully save a life in Eva Carters name.’
The money raised in Eva’s fund is to pay for young women (aged 30yrs. or younger) to have a cervical smear test.
If you are a young woman who would like to have a smear test please call us for an appointment at The Family Medical Centre, Albir 966 865 072.
The Family Medical Centre will also be subsidising the cost of the test to allow more women to benefit from this fund. To take advantage of this opportunity you must quote The Eva Carter Cervical Cancer Awareness Fund at the time of booking your appointment.
