Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Starts Saturday February 1st 2020 at 1:00am

This February, Ovarian Cancer Australia is urging Australians to recognise the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, know their family history and know how to help through our Know Ovarian Cancer campaign. Only 43% of the almost 1,500 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year will survive. With no early detection test, it is so important that women know the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and their family history.

Know the signs and symptoms

Know my family history

Know how to help

Know my story

Afternoon Teal Campaign

Ovarian Cancer Australia is asking you to join us in our efforts to raise awareness and funds to support women with ovarian cancer by hosting an Afternoon Teal this February.

Get your friends together for some sweet treats and great company to raise funds and share the symptoms and signs that all women should know about - your cake, cuppa, conversation and donations may just save a life.

Share your event using #afternoonteal #knowovariancancer and #ovariancanceroz and let us know what you're doing!
