Ovarian cancer is the biggest gynaecological killer of UK women. Four in five women are diagnosed once the cancer has spread from the ovary making complete treatment more difficult. That is why awareness is so important, to drive forward improvements in detection, treatment and ultimately survival.
This year we are celebrating ovarian cancer being part of the Department of Health's Be Clear on Cancer programme, with pilot awareness raising campaigns taking part in six regions across England.
As ovarian cancer charities, we want these local pilots to be expanded into a regional and national programme, in order to save lives. Click on the charities below to find out more.
