    The symptoms of ovarian cancer

    Do you know that 90% of women don't know the four main symptoms of ovarian cancer? Knowing this information could be lifesaving, as an early diagnosis can make all the difference. Share this information with your family and friends.

    Walk in Her Name Step Challenge

    Every year, 295,000 women around the world are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Behind every number you’ll find a mum, a wife, a partner, a sister, a grandmother, an auntie, a friend, a colleague. Someone we’ve laughed with in the best of times and held each other tightly in the worst of times. For every woman diagnosed, approximately only half of the women will survive beyond five years, changing the future for families and friends everywhere. So, this March, walk for yourself, for a woman you love and for every woman affected by ovarian cancer and we can make ovarian cancer a survivable disease.

    Since 2006, we have funded £12.3 million of research projects: more than any other ovarian cancer charity in the UK. We fund research that focuses on the prevention, early detection, and treatment of ovarian cancer because improvements in each of these three areas will transform how long and how well women will live.
