Here's to you,
On Sunday the 31st January, our BBC Lifeline Appeal aired. This was an incredible opportunity to get the nation's eyes on ovarian cancer and gain support for the life-saving research we do. There are so many people who are responsible for giving ovarian cancer this platform, and this is our thank you letter to you, the special people that helped support us.
Firstly, we would like to thank Julia Bradbury. TV presenter Julia Bradbury has been shouting our message from the rooftops, gathering her influence and power, using it for good. Thank you so much Julia, without you we wouldn’t have been able to reach so many women, to help spread awareness of this disease and the vital work we do as an ovarian cancer research charity.
This appeal wouldn’t have been possible without the three amazing women who allowed us into their lives, and opened their hearts to tell their stories. We would like to say a massive thank you to Laura, for sharing her story and highlighting the importance of knowing the symptoms of ovarian cancer. To Rosie for sharing her BRCA journey, and the importance of knowing your genetic risk of ovarian cancer. And to Suzie, for raising awareness of immunotherapy and the important research we do here at Ovarian Cancer Action.
We would also like to say a massive thank you to the BBC for giving us this platform, allowing us to bring ovarian cancer into the public's eye. Thank you so much to all the staff who worked on this project, who went above and beyond to help us deliver our message during a world wide pandemic.
Our final thanks go to you, our supporters. For every like, comment and share on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account, you are helping raise awareness of ovarian cancer and in doing so supporting the work we do. Thank you to all of you who tuned and supported our appeal, we are proud to announce that we reached and exceeded our £21,500 match donation goal. Thank you to the incredible individuals who helped us double the first £21,500 donated.
Your continued support means we can continue to fund our life-saving ovarian cancer research and change women’s lives. Find out more about the research you fund here.
