Sarah and Gaby

30.04.12Target Ovarian Cancer welcomes Sarah Greene and Gaby Roslin as Ambassadors Celebrities pledge us their support to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

We’re thrilled to announce that Sarah Greene and Gaby Roslin, both long term supporters of Target Ovarian Cancer, have agreed to become official Ambassadors.

Sarah, who is appearing in the upcoming Tales of Television Centre on BBC 4 and 2, explains: “My first contact with the charity was in 2010 following the death of my mother, Marjie. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer just three weeks before she died. I had no idea that her symptoms could possibly be linked to ovarian cancer. Neither did her GP. Target Ovarian Cancer is determined to change this tragic and all too frequent scenario. I feel very proud that Target Ovarian Cancer has asked me to be an Ambassador, and I know that Marjie would be proud too.”

Gaby first became involved with us three years ago and in 2010 she hosted a fundraising dinner launching our fund for a UK-wide ovarian cancer research programme. She says: “I’m thrilled to be involved with Target Ovarian Cancer. In the UK we lose 12 women each day to ovarian cancer. Awareness, something is the charity is focused on improving, is vital to reducing this shocking statistic. I’m looking forward to supporting the charity in reducing the number of women dying needlessly every day because they didn’t know the symptoms of this disease.”

Annwen Jones, Target Ovarian Cancer’s Chief Executive comments: “We’re absolutely delighted that Sarah and Gaby have agreed to become Ambassadors for the charity. We believe that they have an important role to play in helping us to reach more UK women and raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, and the urgent need for new treatments, which will ultimately save lives.”
