March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
Ovarian cancer can be devastating. Far too many women are diagnosed too late, once the cancer has already spread, making treatment more difficult. When a woman is diagnosed at the earliest stage, her chance of surviving ovarian cancer for five years or more doubles from just 46 per cent to more than 90 per cent.
2016 saw hundreds of people across the UK raising awareness of the symptoms and fundraising to support our work to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much-needed support to women with ovarian cancer. Well over 2 million people were reached with information on the symptoms, helping to get more women diagnosed sooner and save lives. Thank you so much to everyone who took part – take a look at our gallery to see some highlights of the month!
