Today 11 women will die of ovarian cancer in the UK, every one being someone’s wife, daughter, mother, sister, friend. It’s a devastating disease, physically and mentally, with very few treatments. Historically when diagnosed, women have been twice as likely to die compared to other cancers, including breast cancer - a survival rate that is amongst the lowest in Europe.
What Target Ovarian Cancer does
• Early diagnosis doubles survival, yet awareness of symptoms is woefully low. The charity trains GPs and raises awareness.
• There are few treatments, yet spend on research in the UK has decreased. The charity funds research to find new treatments.
• Three quarters of women say they do not get the support they need. The charity runs support programmes to help women make the right decisions about treatment and to feel less isolated.
