Being Together

Christine's story

“This is my third Target Ovarian Cancer event so I'm really looking forward to it. I remember three years ago in Glasgow having lots of concerns! All unfounded.” Christine, Inverness

Our Being Together days are positive, informal events for all women who have had a diagnosis of any type of ovarian cancer, including primary peritoneal cancer and fallopian tube cancer. You will get the opportunity to meet other women, find out about the latest news in treatment and research from health professionals and take part in workshops. Take a look at our Being Together sample programme to see what's on offer or watch our film below to find out more. 

Our next event is Being Together in Birmingham on 14 June.

Supporting You

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.

Our next event is Supporting You in Plymouth on 20 June 2019

Ask the Experts Conference

Our flagship Ask the Experts Conference takes place every two years and connects the UK’s leading clinicians with women affected by ovarian cancer.

Our latest Ask the Experts Conference took place at the University of Reading in September 2018. You can find all the presentations from previous conferences on our Ask the Experts page.
