I'm raising money for Ovacome by taking part in the Virtual Teal Walk for the next 30 days, challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps a day!

This cause means a lot to me as in 2012 my mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Unfortunately she passed away just a few months after her diagnosis. I have since discovered Ovacome and am amazed by the work they do for those affected by ovarian cancer. I hope that you'll consider contributing towards their work.

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!
