We’re Walking With Women during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this February, in loving Memory of our beloved Maria McMahon.

Maria was a loving Mum, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a best friend, and just recently would’ve been a grandma. But most importantly she was a fighter. Diagnose with stage 3C Ovarian Cancer in early January 2020, we watched her navigate the fight of her life throughout a 13 month period, and lost her not long after on February 3rd 2021. Her courage, strength, love and determination is our inspiration and why we have chosen to take part in this initiative and spread awareness for this lethal disease. If we can prevent just one woman and her loved ones from going through what Maria and our family went through, then we’ve served just a small purpose.

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. We 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 my page.

If not for yourself, then do it for your mum, your sister, your daughter, your best friend and all the females in your life. Every dollar counts!

With love,
The McMahons.
