Sorcha Glenn’s family release hard hitting video

The family of Derry woman Sorcha Glenn have released a video to help raise awareness of cervical cancer.

It was the last wish of Sorcha, who died at the age of 23 from cervical cancer, that her story would allow women to access smear tests even if they are under the age of 25.

And now her family and friends have released a hard hitting video they say will bring a tear to the eyes of those watching it.

Sorcha first visited her GP surgery in June 2013 to ask for an early smear test after being worried about her family history of cervical cancer - but was refused because she was under the age of 25.

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2013.

However despite undergoing rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment, Sorcha died just over a year later.

Her family have since been campaigning to raise awareness.

And today they released a video about Sorcha’s life.

Team Sorcha have asked people to take 15 minutes to watch this video and share it.

“We can’t guarantee it won’t bring a tear to your eye, but it will certainly make you see why young ladies should not be refused cervical screening.

“We at ‪#teamsorcha‬ have been very lucky to of had the privilege to work with videographer Leon Moore and develop this awareness video to tell Sorcha’s story, raise awareness of cervical cancer and the lack of cervical screening in the under 25 year old age group.

“We now need your support to share it UK wide and have as many people as possible watch it. Please share and get all your family and friends to share too.”
