  • 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.

  • Without at least one healthy ovary a child will not be born.

  • The key to changing these statistics and giving women with ovarian cancer a better long-term outlook is early detection.

  • You don’t have to be a scientist to make a difference.

  • Research is the answer.
