Our events for women affected by ovarian cancer give you the chance to meet others and get practical and emotional support. All our events are free to attend, as they are funded by our voluntary income. To find our more about any of our support events, contact our Supportive Services team on 020 7923 5475 or by email.

We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions in case you want to know what to expect from a support event.
Our Being Together days are positive, informal events for everyone living with, or beyond, ovarian cancer.

Science, theory and advances in ovarian cancer: an 'Ask the experts' conference
Our second 'Ask the experts' conference took place in Birmingham in June 2016, where eminent clinicians from across the UK came together to discuss the latest science, theory and advances in ovarian cancer, and answer your questions. Watch our series of videos to catch up on all of the speaker presentations from the day.
A cancer diagnosis can be frightening, and the impact for some on self-esteem and body image, and the increased pressure on relationships, can lead to feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Our Supporting You events offer support on these issues, and include presentations and workshops on: body image, self-esteem, sexuality and relationships, early menopause and HRT and coping with anxiety. Join us at our next Supporting You in Hull.
Keep In Touch
In Touch is our programme to help keep our community talking, and we invite you to join. If you would like to join In Touch to connect with other women with ovarian cancer, share your experiences with others who might have similar stories and give or access support, hints and tips for living well, please let us know.
