Monique Fredatovich is passionate about preventing cervical cancer. Thousands of women each year have a high-grade abnormality of the cervix, she says. If we didn t have screening, some of those women would die. The Henderson resident set up WONS with four other nurses in 1989. The organisation provides free mobile screening services in Auckland so more women can get checked. This year WONS wants to extend its services with a sec- ond mobile screening van. It s holding a charity ball at SkyCity on May 6 to raise funds. There will be a live and silent auction, Shortland Street s Teuila Blakely will act as MC and The Mermaids will perform. The mobile screening is partly funded by Auckland s district health boards and WONS needs to fundraise for the rest. Mrs Fredatovich says low numbers of Asian, Pacific and Maori women are screened and WONS wants to make the testing more accessible. There are cultural barriers and there are financial barriers. If a woman has $20 she will spend it on her child rather than seeing her GP about her own health. WONS has Chinese, Korean, Pacific and Maori staff who make the testing process easier through shared culture and language. We train people so that there are culturally sensitive smear-takers out there. There s a shortage of Maori and Pacific nurses in cervical screening. We want to increase the workforce s knowledge and capacity so we can get these women in. WONS also provides breast screening services. See www.wons.org.nz for details of the ball and screening services.
