Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has welcomed the publication of the Eve Appeal’s guide to genetic testing.
The ‘Ask Eve: Genetic Testing in Ovarian Cancer’ has been developed from the British Gynaecological Cancer Society’s clinical guidelines and has been adapted for a patient perspective.
It aims to explain gene alterations and genetic testing for ovarian cancer patients so that they have the information and support they need after their diagnosis.
The Eve Appeal also have a series of videos with the Gynae Clinical Nurse Specialist, Tracie Miles, explaining some key information around genetic testing in ovarian cancer available to watch on their Youtube channel.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“These are fantastic resources for anyone who is living with ovarian cancer.
“When you are diagnosed with a new illness it can be overwhelming and difficult to know where to start or what to read.
“This is a clear guide written specifically for patients and I would strongly encourage anyone diagnosed with this awful disease to take a look at these resources.”
