Could you help more women learn the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer?

Every year 7000 UK women face the devastating diagnosis of ovarian cancer.  Many may have had symptoms for months but dismissed them as digestive problems or signs of the menopause or getting older.  Most women are diagnosed when their cancer has spread, but if it had been caught earlier it could be easier to treat and have better results.

Getting Ovacome’s straightforward message about the signs and symptoms to more women is vital and many of our supporters distribute our B.E.A.T. campaign materials to places they visit and people they meet.

B is for bloating that is persistent and doesn’t come and go

E is for eating difficulty and feeling full more quickly

A is for abdominal and pelvic pain you feel most days

T is for toilet changes in urination or bowel habits.

B.E.A.T. cards and posters can be displayed and given out by your local shops, cafes and health clinics. They are easy to use and understand. 

The straightforward message lends itself to a short talk or presentation.

If you want to help to get our message across – that symptom awareness can mean better health outcomes for women – then contact us on 0207 299 6658 or by email and join the team of Ovacome awareness raisers.
