“I want every woman to receive a quick diagnosis like I did, so that it’s not down to luck, and every woman has the same chance.”
Christine, Scottish Highlands.

This March we want everyone to TAKE OVAR to raise money, awareness and to support women with ovarian cancer. We'll send you everything you need to make your fundraising a success.

Your support will save lives

  • £50 could help 200 people learn about the symptoms of ovarian cancer, making sure they know when to visit their GP.
  • ​£100 could train 200 GPs on ovarian cancer and best practice for early diagnosis, getting more women into treatment sooner.
  • £500 could pay for two days of medical research into more effective treatments for the future.

Shout out loud

Get started immediately by sharing the symptoms on social media. Our resources page has infographics and images for you to share with your friends and followers.

Bake Some Noise

The money you raise will be the perfect icing on the cake - ask for donations for tasty treats, get competitive with a bake off or why not rustle up a raffle?
