MP is ‘teal cancer hero’
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.”
