Gwyneth Strong – Patron

"I am very proud of my role as patron to Ovarian Cancer Action, a charity that’s very close to my heart. It's now been more than 15 years since I lost my mum to ovarian cancer and even though a lot has changed for the better, there’s still much to be done.

Ovarian Cancer Action plays such a pivotal role in improving survival rates; the work of the charity is essential if we’re to improve future outcomes for those whose lives are affected by this insidious disease.”


Sophie Ellis-Bextor

“I am a proud supporter of Ovarian Cancer Action and an ambassador for the charity’s #WalkInHerName campaign. It’s so inspiring to see so many people come together to organise walks dedicated to loved ones whose lives have been affected by ovarian cancer.

The money raised funds pioneering work at the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre, which strives to make treatment more effective and reduce the number of women who die from the disease. Ovarian cancer takes the life of a woman every two hours in the UK and this has to change. Together we can make a difference.”


Emilia Fox

“I am extremely proud to support Ovarian Cancer Action and I’m proud to be an ambassador for the charity’s #WalkInHerName campaign. Each year thousands of women across the UK walk in support of those whose lives have been touched by ovarian cancer.

My close friend's sister, Hattie, was lost to this awful disease and I am dedicated to helping raise funds for vital research. Together we can walk, step by step, towards a future where no woman needs to die of ovarian cancer.”
