March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

More than a statistic

As the UK’s ovarian cancer research charity, using data and evidence to achieve the best outcomes for women is at the heart of everything we do. This means that when it comes to funding research, we are committed to investing your donations in the projects most likely to make an impact. Whether that means accessing better, kinder treatments for a woman facing a diagnosis today, or preventing the disease for the next generation of women.

But behind this data lies the individual stories of the thousands of women diagnosed in the UK each year and the people that care for them. The different ways in which women and their loved ones navigate the challenges of life beyond an ovarian cancer diagnosis and find ways to come to terms with their ‘new normal’.
