In Australia, 1 women dies of Ovarian Cancer every 8 hours.

As a fit and healthy 69 year old and with no family history, my mum was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer 3 & 1/2 years ago.

I'm Walking 30km With Women during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this February, to raise funds for Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer - ovarian cancer. The five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer in Australia is just 49%, 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 me support the vital work of the OCRF, and the dedicated researchers they fund, by making a donation to my page. It doesn’t have to be a large donation, $2, $5, any amount! Every dollar counts! THANK YOU 🙏🏼
