of $2,200 goal

I'm Frocking Up to raise funds for Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer - ovarian cancer. The five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer in Australia is just 46%, meaning those diagnosed get less than half a chance of surviving five years from their diagnosis. I want to help change the statistics and give those diagnosed with ovarian cancer a greater chance of survival. Research is the answer. The OCRF is the leading non-government funder of ovarian cancer research in Australia, and the largest funder nationwide for early detection research. If an early detection test can be developed, survival rates for ovarian cancer could rise to 90% and above, saving the lives of thousands.

Thankfully I don't have a personal story about ovarian cancer. Please help me support the vital work of the OCRF, and the dedicated researchers they fund, by making a donation to my page. Every dollar counts!

Day 19 part 2 - greek goddess. I decided to do a modern version and channelled my inner Nana Mouskouri. The ultimate 20th century Greek goddess.

19 Oct 2021

17 Oct 2021

Day 18 was a sponsored day for Miss Avryl who asked for Scarlett O'hara. I had made an attempt last week bit it wasn't up to my standard. So today I did the red dress for her, and threw in a bonus Rhett Butler!

10 Oct 2021

Day 10 was a 2 part day. I went to a 'bring out your old Holdens' at a vintage car club. Part 2 was a Scarlett O'Hara inspired outfit. I failed to produce anything worthy of Avryl's donation so part 2 is deferred.

Day 5 I was spotted in my Cruella outfit, sponsored by Jo. Jo also works as a sonographer at a Women's imaging clinic. I had been referred for an ultrasound of my ovaries as one of a few tests for bloating and other digestive issues. Thankfully I got the all clear.
