Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Date(s)
01 - 31/03/2021
Description
Ovarian cancer awareness

Ovarian cancer is the biggest gynaecological killer of women and people with ovaries in the United Kingdom, with UK survival rates among the worst in Europe. Three-quarters of those diagnosed are done so after the cancer has spread, making treatment more difficult.

This is why awareness is so important - March, in particular, is a time to campaign and speak out for further funding and research into ovarian cancer, helping to improve survival rates and the quality of life for those suffering with ovarian cancer.

But behind these statistics lies the individual stories of the thousands of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the UK every year and the people that care for them. You can find out more about how to get involved in Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, as well as read the personal stories of women living with and beyond an ovarian cancer diagnosis, at www.ovarian.org.uk/march-ovarian-cancer-awareness-month/.
