Nearly 14,000 of you have signed our call to action demanding earlier diagnosis. This is incredible, and from the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank each and every one of you who joined and added your name. Together, we have shown just how strong our voice can be. And we want you to know that Target Ovarian Cancer will never stop fighting to make sure UK governments transform early diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
Right now, we need to focus on being there for women with ovarian cancer, at a time they need us most. We’re providing vital support through our Support Line and reaching out to those who need us through our online community. We are also working with decision makers in the NHS to ensure the voices of women with ovarian cancer are heard during this crisis.
We know we need to keep pushing to raise awareness and make sure women can be diagnosed at the earliest possible stage. So, when the time is right, we will make sure decision makers in governments across the UK have heard us. Our call to action is still live, so if you haven't already done so, you can still add your name ready for when that time comes.

As secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Ovarian Cancer (APPG), in early March we hosted our annual Teal Heroes event in at parliament to mark Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. It was fantastic to see so many parliamentarians raising awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Here are some of our favourite photos from the day!
