Ever been worried about how to cover all your expenses since you have been diagnosed? Have you thought about changing your diet and don’t know quite how? Not sure about what and how much exercise you can do?

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to get the facts you need, find an alternative view or reach out to relevant experts. And yet this is often key to helping you decide your next steps. We're here to help.

We launched Ask the experts because you told us that you want to know about all sorts of issues that are impacted by a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. We hope it helps you to feel as positive and empowered as possible. We put your questions to top specialists including oncologists, clinical nurse specialists, lawyers, beauty writers and finance gurus. We also consult women that have been through similar experiences and pass on advice they have.

Our next Ask the experts topics will focus on:

New benefit regulations

Are you suffering with financial hardship since your cancer diagnosis? The new Welfare Reform Act 2012 introduced a variety of reforms including a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment. Are you aware about these changes and what impact they may have on you? Our expert will be able to shed a light on all your questions.
