Support events

Ovarian Cancer Australia hold information sessions across Australia for women, their family & friends affected by ovarian cancer.

These events provide participants access to the specialised knowledge of ovarian cancer industry experts in the form of presentations and a question and answer session.

Ovarian Cancer Australia would like to acknowledge every person living with ovarian cancer, their families and their friends. Your courage and resilience inspire us to continue making an impactful change for you and for future generations.

Male Partners Program

The Male Partners Program is a new development of Ovarian Cancer Australia and has resulted from emerging research undertaken by OCA and Monash University that identified unmet needs for male partners of women who have ovarian cancer.  Proudly supported by Dry July Foundation, this support program is here to support male partners of women with ovarian cancer.  Online monthly support sessions for men start in April and will continue throughout the year on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.  

Next session: October 19th at 7 pm
