Ovarian cancer does not receive the attention of other female cancers, such as breast and cervical cancer, yet ovarian cancer is more common than cervical cancer and claims more lives.
This lack of focus has meant that awareness of the disease and its signs symptoms are very low with many thinking that there are no symptoms.
The belief that there are no signs and symptoms can lead to inaction not only by women but healthcare professionals too.
We must not be complacent as the UK has some of the worst survival rates in Europe.
We believe that if there is a greater level of awareness of the signs and symptoms this can lead to earlier diagnosis and thus improved survival rates.
Therefore we are passionate about improved awareness and have an educational outreach programme that targets both the general public and healthcare professionals.
