About us Our community Our community Ovacome was founded by Sarah Dickinson in 1996. Sarah had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and found that there were no resources and little to no support or information for women with the disease. She sat down with a group of likeminded people and Ovacome was born. To this day we continue to support anyone affected by ovarian cancer; this often includes family members, clinicians and friends. We are a strong community of many thousands of people, all working together with the aim of reducing isolation, sharing information, promoting knowledge and supporting anyone affected by ovarian cancer. In 2017 we had just under 4,000 members and supported over 18,000 people. Some of our original members are still involved in the charity today. This means that we have been working together with some women for over 19 years! Because we are a membership charity, community is at the heart of everything we do. All our support services are provided in the way that you have requested and we exist to meet your needs. We respond to our members’ requests, so if you have any questions or suggestions, please do get in touch. We love to hear from you and we will always value and respect anything that you have to say.
