Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Thank you for your support this Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

This March we asked for your help. With only three percent of women very confident at spotting a symptom of ovarian cancer, there is an urgent need to raise awareness. You took on the challenge, organising 300 events across the whole of the UK and distributing over 20,000 symptom leaflets. A selection of your photos are displayed in our gallery. If you haven't sent yours to us already you can email them to the team.

How the money you raised will help

  • £50 could allow 200 people to learn about the symptoms of ovarian cancer by receiving our symptoms leaflet to help with earlier diagnosis.
  • ​£100 could enable 200 GPs to update their knowledge of ovarian cancer and best practice for early diagnosis.
  • £500 could pay for two days of medical research into new treatments for ovarian cancer.

Pay in the money you've raised

There are several ways for you to pay in your fundraising money. You can use our online donation form or request a paying-in-slip so you can pay directly into our account at any HSBC branch. You can also make a cheque payable to Target Ovarian Cancer and post it to 2 Angel Gate, London, EC1V 2PT. Thank you!

Keep on spreading the word

If you have a website, blog, Twitter account, Facebook page or anywhere else you could spread the word, please continue to share our symptoms image:
