Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held in February each year in Australia.
Our priorities during OCAM:
Educate. Only 31% of Australians know that ovarian cancer has the poorest survival rate of any female cancer in Australia. This devastating disease suffers from a lack of awareness and progress, we will continue to spread evidence based information every Australian should know about this disease.
Advocate on behalf of those impacted by ovarian cancer for more research funding, better laws and policies, greater access to affordable treatment options and ultimately better outcomes for all those affected.
Elevate the voices of women impacted by this disease by sharing their stories, their real life experiences and getting these stories in front of as many eyes and ears as possible.
and of course we can't do any of it without raising funds to ultimately change the future.
There are many ways to be involved during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
