Fiona Boult I was diagnosed with stage 3 clear cell ovarian cancer in December 2018. I had surgery before Christmas and am now having chemotherapy. Although I'm still in the process of coming to terms with my situation, I am doing well and trying to keep very active with lots of dog walking - so thought it would be a great idea to put my steps towards raising money for Ovacome through the Ovacome Teal Walk. I'm aiming to walk at least 10,000 steps a day, except on the day I am having chemo, and often walk more than this.

Ovacome has been a great source of support and information for me at this tricky time.

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! Fiona Boult
