Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month


Did you know February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month? This is designed to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer and to recognise women, their families and friends affected by ovarian cancer. The website holds a complete range of awareness brochures to clearly explain the risk factors and symptoms – information that every women needs to know. There is an awareness DVD and even an iPhone App called Kiss & Makeup that allows women to track the symptoms that are most frequently reported by women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

While we do not know the causes of most ovarian cancer, research into the causes is continuing in Australia and overseas. To show your support to your community you can buy a team ribbon through the Ovarian Cancer Australia Website where there is a whole range of support resources.

It is the eighth most common cancer and the sixth most common cause of cancer death affecting women in Australia.
