Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Held each year in February to educate Australians on ovarian cancer, and raise awareness by sharing the stories of real women affected by the disease.

We lose one courageous Australian woman to ovarian cancer every eight hours. 

But there are multiple way to be involved during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month to ensure their courage continues.


On 23 February every dollar you donate will be matched by some of our generous major donors to ensure we can continue running our vital support programs.

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held each year in Australia to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, to share the stories of real women affected by the disease, to highlight the risk factors for ovarian cancer and educate Australians on ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Ovarian Cancer Australia provides care and support for those affected by ovarian cancer and strives to make ovarian cancer a national priority. Importantly, we advocate for increased sector funding to enable delivery of the key priority areas outlined in the National Action Plan.
