Target Ovarian Cancer has found that as many as one in every five women (20 per cent) in England is too ill to treat by the time they receive their ovarian cancer diagnosis, according to data released this week.
This time last year, we launched our ‘It’s time to TAKE OVAR’ campaign. The campaign aims to transform the futures of more than 25,000 women in the UK who are living with ovarian cancer – and thousands more who are yet to be diagnosed.
Today sees the release of a global study from the World Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Among other things, it shows us that women in the UK are being failed when it comes to early diagnosis of ovarian cancer in comparison with other countries.
Thursday, 13 September saw over 100 women with ovarian cancer and their family and friends join specialist doctors, surgeons, and researchers for Target Ovarian Cancer’s third Ask the Experts Conference at the University of Reading.
