Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity. We work to improve early diagnosis, fund life saving research and provide much needed support to women with ovarian cancer. Meet our ambassadors and patrons.
"My first contact with the charity was in 2010 following the death of my mother, Marjie. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer just three weeks before she died. I had no idea that her symptoms could possibly be linked to ovarian cancer. Neither did her GP. Target Ovarian Cancer is determined to change this tragic and all too frequent scenario. I feel very proud to be a patron and I know that Marjie would be proud too."

“I knew nothing about ovarian cancer. After doing a comedy show to benefit Target Ovarian Cancer, I learnt about the symptoms and made sure all my family and friends knew them too. I’m delighted to now be an ambassador. I’ve seen the impact they have, and I’m delighted to be working with a charity that is achieving so much for women with ovarian cancer.”
"I’m thrilled to be involved with Target Ovarian Cancer. In the UK we lose 11 women each day to ovarian cancer. Awareness, something the charity is focused on improving, is vital to reducing this shocking statistic. I’m looking forward to supporting the charity, to reduce the number of women dying needlessly every day because they didn’t know the symptoms of this disease."
