I am fundraising for this charity because my grandma had ovarian cancer and also my mam had ovarian cancer too, my mam grew a 1.7stone cyst on her ovary which the cancer was contained in luckily for that cyst they were able to diagnose it as were able to remove it but, unfortunately has left her with life long pain through out her whole body.
However for so many people this is not the case as because of where it is it can be such a silent one and is very hard to know that you may have it.
So that's why it is so important that this charity is kept going as it helps with supporting people who have gone through having this cancer.

Ovacome provides a range of support services for anyone who has been affected by ovarian cancer, whether directly or indirectly. They offer a free telephone support line, a 24 hour online forum, email support, instant chat services and face to face support groups. They also work to raise awareness of the disease and to provide information from some of the top clinicians in the field of ovarian cancer.

Ovacome also fund a research fellow at Birmingham University, who is working to develop new therapies and understand and improve outcomes for women with advanced ovarian cancer.

As a smaller charity, every donation really helps Ovacome to continue and expand their services, providing vital support to those affected by this lesser known form of cancer. Any amount that you can offer would be greatly appreciated and would contribute towards their important work.

Please share this page with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere, so that I can reach my target and that together, we can help Ovacome to do more for those affected by this disease. Thank you!
