Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust
Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust was the concept of London businessman, James Maxwell (1957 – 2003) in memory of his wife, Jo (1959 – 1999) who died from cervical cancer at the age of 40. We’re supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust because we want you to have all the facts about this potentially life-saving test. Did you know that almost one in three women and people with a cervix don’t take up their invite? We want to change that, and you can help!
