Lesley, Lily & Harry’s granny, was such a strong character and throughout her life she always stood up for what she believed in. She enriched all our lives and was someone to look up to and admire with her dedication and unwavering spirit to help others.

Thanks to Ovacome she found support in many ways including the forums which provided her with invaluable advice on new chemotherapy treatments she was about to start, the possible side effects and what can help. None of us could possibly know what she was truly going through but being able to reach out to others who did understand was a great help. That is why we are raising money for Ovacome so they can continue their research and support others with Ovarian cancer. Thanks for inspiring us all Lesley Hedges.

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!
