How does my fundraising help?

Your support makes all the difference to ensure that we can continue working to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide support to women with ovarian cancer.

£20 could give 20 women the right symptom information, making sure they access support as early as possible.

£35 could update training for five GPs on ovarian cancer symptoms and best practice for early diagnosis.

£70 could pay for two hours of groundbreaking medical research to find more effective treatments for the future.

£250 could fund a day of life-saving research. We're working to improve ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment for everyone now, and in the future. 

How do I get started with my fundraising?
