Strictly Come Dancing and BBC Radio 2 presenter Claudia Winkleman introduces stories from three women in our BBC Lifeline Appeal. Watch Rachel, Susannah and Annie share their determination to raise funds and change lives. They have their own stories to tell, each covering a different aspect of our work to raise awareness, fund research and support everyone affected by ovarian cancer:
To do your bit, please watch and share: in this programme we transmit the biggest issues in ovarian cancer directly into the nation's homes. For 10 minutes, viewers will see how devastating a diagnosis of ovarian cancer can be, and how they can support us to help more women in future. Donations to the appeal made before Sunday 15 August will be matched pound for pound, up to £30,000.
Claudia Winkleman said:
I'm delighted to be supporting Target Ovarian Cancer's appeal. If you can, please support the charity today and help improve early diagnosis, fund research, and save lives.
After being diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer, Rachel is passionate about raising awareness and early diagnosis:
For me it's all about GP education: such a practical solution to the late diagnosis so many of us face.
Susannah had a recurrence of ovarian cancer and is now taking maintenance drug olaparib:
Their research into newer and better treatments has never been more needed.
Annie sought comfort and solace in our support line at a very dark time:
I called the support line, and it completely changed my life.
Watch the appeal on Sunday 25 July, 1.50pm on BBC Two. Tune in and share with your family and friends so we can reach even more women.
