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

We can provide you with free awareness materials including posters, leafets and wallet cards, as well as teal ribbons. Please let us know quantities and your postal address.

It can be a great idea to hand some leaflets and posters to your local GP surgery, or to display them in your library or local shops! You can share our handy little symptom wallet cards with your friends and family.

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.
