Losing a loved one to ovarian cancer, sadly, happens too often and we are very grateful to you for thinking of us at this difficult time.
Donating in memory can be a way to celebrate a loved one’s life and pay tribute to causes that are important to them. You can collect donations in lieu of flowers, allowing friends and family to pay their respects in a way that better reflects your loved one’s life.Funeral Notice
Providing friends and family with an online funeral notice can be a quick and easy way to make sure guests have everything they need.
As well as containing details of the funeral, you can also use this page to collect donations, as well as a space for everyone, whether they can attend or not, to leave condolences and share memories.
After the funeral, this page can also become a Tribute Fund in honour of your loved one.
A Tribute Fund is a lasting way to celebrate the courage and strength of women affected by ovarian cancer. They are an online platform where loved ones can share pictures, stories and memories as well as giving you one, easy to use, place where people can give a single or regular donation. Friends and family can upload meaningful songs and light candles in remembrance.
You can learn more about Tribute Funds here.
