Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin will host a cervical cancer awareness event at Stormont next week to remember Derry woman Sorcha Glenn who died with the illness at 23 years-old. 

Ms McLaughlin said; 

"The tragic death last year of Derry woman Sorcha Glenn at just 23 years-old highlights the devastating impact cervical cancer can have on families and communities. 

"Too many woman of all ages are dying as a result of cervical cancer. 

"It is vitally important that women are aware of the signs of cervical cancer and seek treatment as soon as possible. 

"I will be hosting an awareness event at Stormont on Tuesday November 24 at 2.30pm to remember Sorcha and to make people aware of the dangers of cervical cancer. 

"I would encourage as many people as possible to attend the event to raise awareness of this cancer."
