On Foot for Our Friend H


raised so far


of $3,000 goal

We are 'Walking With Women' during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this February, to raise funds for Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer - ovarian cancer. We are also walking in loving memory of our Mate, H. Heather was an incredible woman. Kind, generous and always had time for other people. This is our way of giving back, to honour H and most importantly to help change the narrative for many Australian women and their friends and family.
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 our page. Every dollar counts! We love you H.
