I'm raising money for Ovacome, who provide support and information to those affected by ovarian cancer. This cause means a lot to me, and I hope that you'll consider contributing towards their work.

John, Jo and I are I are taking part in the Teal Walk for Ovacome, a great charity supporting those with ovarian cancer. We are each counting our steps and my target is to average over 5,000 steps a day for 3 months. John and Jo are aiming for over 10,000 steps. All our steps will be added to those of all the others taking part - the overall target is to walk around the entire coastline of the country!

Many of those taking part will be in differing stages of ovarian cancer but everyone will be able to join in at their own level of fitness. Family join in to show love and support - my mum’s amazing. Great concept, good cause,  so please donate what you can. 

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!

Thank you

Cynthia, John and Jo

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.
