Dry July is a national fundraiser that challenges Australians to go alcohol-free in the month of July while raising funds for people affected by cancer.
You can help make a difference and go dry this July and support Ovarian Cancer Australia.
The funds you raise as part of your Dry July will help support the psychological, practical and emotional support we offer people impacted by ovarian cancer.

Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have extremely complex support needs. More than 1500 Australian women are diagnosed every year; tragically the survival rate is less than 50 per cent - diagnosis means that very suddenly women and their families are forced to deal with a poor prognosis, brutal, debilitating surgery and because of the high recurrence rate of ovarian cancer, the fear that the cancer may come back.
Our vision is that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone and this year, funding from Dry July will focus on the psychological, practical and emotional support we offer - addressing the many issues women with ovarian cancer experience in addition to their clinical needs. This holistic approach takes into consideration that psychological factors and each woman’s surrounding social environment have an impact on her physical and mental wellness and ability to function.
Seeking emotional support in the public health system can often feel rushed, due to high demands, but I feel I can take my time when I call Ovarian Cancer Australia, I have comfort in knowing that I’m not on a timer. It’s great to speak to someone who is readily available and can provide personal support" ~ Josie
Having a break from alcohol also has great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself. It's a win-win!
Go Dry this July and together we can provide support and information sessions for people so they do not feel so isolated and they can connect with others in a similar situation.
