Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that begins in a woman’s ovaries. Some of the cells in one or both ovaries start to grow abnormally and develop into cancer.
Around 90 per cent of ovarian cancers start on the outer covering of the ovary. This is known as epithelial ovarian cancer. Whilst only 1400 women will be diagnosed with this disease every year, more than 900 of these women will die.
We need your help to reverse these numbers, and to give those suffering with ovarian cancer a better quality of life.
