  • Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death of all gynaecological cancers.
  • Unlike other cancers, there is NO early detection test.
  • Ovarian cancer has a lower survival rate than both breast and cervical cancer.
  • 80% of women are already in the advanced stages of the disease when diagnosed.
  • Over 50% of the community incorrectly believe a pap smear diagnoses ovarian cancer.

  • You don’t have to be a scientist to make a difference.
  • Research is the answer.
