Donate to ovarian cancer research

Every 8 hours, a woman dies from ovarian cancer. Research is critically underfunded.

We are no longer matching donations, but we still need your support to fund further ovarian cancer research.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you we have raised more than $30,000 for groundbreaking ovarian cancer research.

A special thanks to our generous matched givers Vicky Kvisle, a Cure Cancer Lifetime Member, and a recent anonymous donor, who have made it possible for your donations towards ovarian cancer research to be DOUBLED! 

While we can no longer match donations, we still need your support to take our impact further.  You can still make a donation to support ovarian cancer research initiatives and help cure cancer and improve the lives of patients.

Nothing prepares you for the moment a doctor asks you if you want to keep your cervix and uterus

Every year, nearly 2,000 women and people with ovaries are blindsided by a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Dubbed the silent killer, it's the deadliest gynaecological cancer, and is often undetected until it's too late due to the vagueness of symptoms. Despite this, research on ovarian cancer is critically underfunded and there are no screening or early detection tests.

Jo Yates (pictured above) is one of the lucky ones. Diagnosed early due to a proactive doctor, she still remembers the chilling moment when her doctor told her she needed an immediate hysterectomy in her early 40s. Like many women before her, ovarian cancer had crept into her life silently, without any warning signs. 

Today, she is cancer-free and stands as a testament to the importance of funding cutting-edge ovarian cancer research.

You can play a vital role in ensuring other people, like Jo, receive a second chance at life by supporting groundbreaking, new research that aims to detect ovarian cancer earlier, develop more effective treatments, and ultimately save lives.

*Additional donations towards ovarian cancer research will be matched until we reach our $30,000 goal, but further donations to ovarian cancer research will still be welcomed. 

Jo Yates

Nothing prepares you for the moment a doctor asks you if you want to keep your cervix and uterus, and in the same breath, tells you that you will go into menopause. But ovarian cancer survivor Jo Yates counts herself as one of the lucky ones. 

Jo had never heard of ovarian cancer and had no obvious symptoms. It was only through a standard pap smear that her doctor found something unusual. After an ultrasound and CT scan, they discovered tumours in her ovaries. She needed a hysterectomy right away.

While she hadn’t planned on having kids, Jo knows that for other women who want to be mothers, an ovarian cancer diagnosis is even more devastating.

Dr Emily Colvin

Dr Emily Colvin sought to examine the importance of non-cancer cells in ovarian tumours. Her goal was to identify those cells as targets for new and more effective therapies, and find ways to diagnose the disease earlier. 

This research is crucial because ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynaecological cancer and is often diagnosed late with poor survival rates. Despite initial chemotherapy success, many patients' cancer returns and becomes resistant. 

Emily's Cure Cancer-funded project aimed to understand these cells better, helping to improve ovarian cancer treatment and quality of life for patients.
