Stolen Moments campaign launches

sm

We can’t give back the stolen moments, but you can help us catch the thief

Almost two decades are stolen from a woman who dies of ovarian cancer in the UK. Years of missed anniversaries, birthdays, weddings and graduations. The countless hugs and cups of tea.

Symptoms such as bloating, loss of appetite, needing to wee more frequently and stomach pain present when cancer has advanced and a woman’s chance of survival has already dropped. We want to catch ovarian cancer in its earliest stages, ideally before it even develops. There is currently no screening tool for ovarian cancer and we want to change this.

Prevention is better than cure

When a woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the odds are stacked against her. Recurrence is high and survival rates are poor. No woman deserves to live in fear of either.
