In the UK, around 7,500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. Unfortunately, it is often diagnosed at a later stage, when survival is at its lowest. The statistics below are shocking but they are ones that we hope - with your help - we will be able to change. Ovarian Cancer Action is committed to funding the research that saves lives by attacking the problem at every level; from developing better treatments so women with the disease can live longer, to developing a screening tool to ensure it is caught in its earliest stage.
We all came from ovaries. Together we will find and fund the innovators who can break this cancer.
