Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Every March, we encourage you to find out how you can make a difference by raising funds and awareness for women with ovarian cancer.

The pandemic has made diagnosing ovarian cancer even harder. When it’s diagnosed early, 9 out of 10 women will survive – and now they need your help more than ever.

During March and throughout the year, your help can raise much-needed funds and awareness.

The money you raise will:

  • train GPs to spot ovarian cancer  
  • spread the word about the symptoms everyone should know  
  • support even more women with ovarian cancer  

Get involved

Want to get involved but don't know where to start? We have plenty of ideas for you!

1 in 50 awareness challenge

1 in 50 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. That's why each March we challenge our supporters to tell 50 people about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. It's simple – and could save a life.

Take on the 1 in 50 awareness challenge.
