How will my fundraising help?
- We fund world-class scientific research at our Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre, the only dedicated research centre for ovarian cancer in the UK.
- Treatment for ovarian cancer is not as advanced as treatment for other, better-known cancers like breast and prostate cancer.
- We want to make ovarian cancer treatment more effective and reduce the number of women who die from the disease.
