Some of you may know that in 2017 I was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. After struggling for many years of secondary infertility doctors discovered a tumour whilst doing routine scans during fertility treatment.

I am one of the seriously lucky ones - or I should say miraculously blessed.

Had we not pursued additional fertility treatment, the doctors wouldn't have scanned my ovaries and the tumour would never have been discovered in time. Because of this, they discovered the cancer at an early stage. As yet, there is no early detection test for the 'average' woman.

I know that my situation is rare.

Our son Micah, who was miraculously conceived after the tumour was removed is a reminder to us about how precious life is and a second chance at life that has been given to me, and I thank God for healing me through amazing doctors and medical support.

That's why on Sunday 6th February (during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month), my husband Andy, and I will be walking 30km along the Mornington Peninsula - as an act of gratefulness, and also to raise funds for Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer - ovarian cancer.

The five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer in Australia is just 46%, meaning those diagnosed get less than half a chance of surviving five years from their diagnosis. I want to help change the statistics and give those diagnosed with ovarian cancer a greater chance of survival. Research is the answer.

The OCRF is the leading non-government funder of ovarian cancer research in Australia, and the largest funder nationwide for early detection research. If an early detection test can be developed, survival rates for ovarian cancer could rise to 90% and above, saving the lives of thousands.

Please help us support the vital work of the OCRF, and the dedicated researchers they fund, by making a donation to our page. Every dollar counts!

Thank you so much.
