We lose one courageous Australian woman to ovarian cancer every eight hours.
But there are multiple way to be involved during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month to ensure their courage continues.
Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held each year in Australia to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, to share the stories of real women affected by the disease, to highlight the risk factors for ovarian cancer and educate Australians on ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Ovarian Cancer Australia provides care and support for those affected by ovarian cancer and strives to make ovarian cancer a national priority. Importantly, we advocate for increased sector funding to enable delivery of the key priority areas outlined in the National Action Plan.
