The Eve Appeal

Chariots of Fire star Nigel Havers makes an appeal on behalf of the Eve Appeal, a charity dedicated to improving the prevention, detection and treatment of gynaecological cancers.

The film features Sophie, who was suddenly diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 34, after finding a small lump in her abdomen. Sophie had one of her ovaries removed and began an intensive course of chemotherapy. However, she feared she would not be able to have children because of her treatment. Fortunately Sophie's cancer was detected early, and she has made a good recovery. She has recently given birth to a little baby girl, Flora.
