I’m back Frocking Up for my 4th year in a row putting my love of dressing up to good use to raise much needed funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

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. 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!
