Our nationwide free events for women affected by ovarian cancer give you the chance to meet others and get practical and emotional support.

We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions in case you want to know what to expect from a support event.

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. 

Join us at our next Being Together event in Newcastle on Thursday 8 November.

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.

Information about our next Supporting You event will be posted here soon.

Ask the Experts Conference

Our flagship Ask the Experts Conference takes place every two years and brings together eminent clinicians from across the UK. Guests have the opportunity to learn about the latest research and developments in ovarian cancer and, most importantly, ask their questions to the experts.

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. 

We are delighted that our next Ask the Experts Conference will be at the University of Reading on Thursday 13 September.

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
