Highlighting the importance of symptom awareness as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month launches this weekend, there has been an increase in coverage in the media of women affected by ovarian cancer.

A double page spread appeared on Tuesday 24 February in the Daily Mail, featuring the story of Sue Edwards who visited her GP some twenty times before she was diagnosed. The level of online comments give you an idea of the amount of interest it generated. Dr Miriam Stoppard in the Daily Mirror has also been active in raising awareness, in an article on Thursday 26 February. You can read the online articles by following the links below.

Women's magazines have also been stressing the importance of symptoms, with a range of articles in publications such as Good Housekeeping, Easy Living, and Grazia and Best.

Friday 27 February will see Dr Ayan Panja of BBC1's 'Street Doctor' fame undertake a series of local radio interviews across the UK, along with Frances Reid from Target Ovarian Cancer, followed by a live webchat which you can participate in by following the link below.

If you are a woman who has ovarian cancer, and think you could help us extend the media coverage by telling your story, please do get in touch by emailing pr@targetovariancancer.org.uk
