Thank you for telling us your story. Your story could help raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and let people know what it’s like to live with the disease. Our case studies raise awareness in a number of different ways:
Talking to the media
Often journalists want to add a voice to a story to make it more real for the readers. This may involve a 10 minute phone conversation with a journalist, a visit to a local TV or radio station or a face to face interview with a journalist at a time that suits you. Interviews are nothing to worry about – they are often less than 10 minutes and it’s usually just a simple chat over the phone.
Giving a talk
We organise a range of events, including our Being Together days and parliamentary receptions. Sometimes we ask women with ovarian cancer to give a talk about their own experiences. Although we're always on hand to help you write a speech and support you, this opportunity would only suit you if you were comfortable with public speaking.
Focus groups and publications
Women with ovarian cancer are at the heart of everything we do. We often invite women to take part in focus groups to help us shape a new guide or product. We use women's experiences and stories in our guides to help women fell less isolated and more supported. Featuring in a guide might mean taking part in a photo shoot and sharing your story with us.
