THE MP for Mid­dle­ton and Hey­wood be­came a ‘teal hero’ for Ovar­ian Cancer Aware­ness Month.

Liz McInnes at­tended a special event hosted by the All-Party Par­lia­men­tary Group on Ovar­ian Cancer at the Houses of Par­lia­ment.

Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans in­clud­ing Liz dressed in the colour teal, learned more about the symp­toms of ovar­ian cancer and com­mit­ted to help­ing raise aware­ness.

Liz said: “Eleven women die ev­ery day from ovar­ian cancer.

“Early di­ag­no­sis saves lives and rais­ing aware­ness of the symp­toms is cru­cial.

“Be­ing a ‘teal hero’ was a great op­por­tu­nity to raise aware­ness of ovar­ian cancer.”
