Offering free, holistic care nation wide
No one should have to cope with ovarian cancer alone. Ovarian Cancer Australia offers a range of support services, including specialist ovarian cancer nurses available free to people affected by ovarian cancer across Australia, no matter where they live.
Every woman’s ovarian cancer experience is different, so it is crucial they receive support tailored to their individual needs. The launch of our Teal Support Program in 2019 ensured women diagnosed with ovarian cancer had access to a specialist nurse, akin to the highly successful existing services available for those with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Women often tell us that while the physical effects of an ovarian cancer diagnosis can be devastating, it’s the mental toll that can weigh on them the most.
Our holistic services cater directly to those unmet needs that so many people with an ovarian cancer diagnosis are facing. The level of care we offer free of charge is something that cannot be accessed elsewhere in Australia. Read more
