Why support Ovacome's work?

Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of gynaecological cancer death, with over 4,000 women losing their life to this disease a year. Each year there are around 7,400 new cases.

Ovacome continues to support anyone affected by ovarian cancer; this often includes family members, clinicians and friends. We provide dedicated help and resources, personalised information, and emotional support.

Ovacome provides a range of support services: a free telephone support line, a 24 hour online forum, email support, instant chat service and face to face support groups. Our free support services are vital for this often overlooked and misdiagnosed disease. As one of our members wrote:

‘Ovacome offers a life raft when everything seems overwhelming’.
