Maura shares a 'pearl of wisdom'

BROADCASTER Maura Derrane has come out of her shell in support of the 'Pearl of Wisdom Campaign' in aid of cervical cancer.

The high-profile campaign is aimed at raising awareness of the disease ahead of the European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. The message is straightforward -- regular screening stops the disease before it can start.

Its 'pearl of wisdom' symbol is designed to help raise consciousness surrounding the condition in the same way the pink ribbon works for breast cancer.

The European prevention week began yesterday and runs until January 28.
