I'm Frocking Up to raise funds for Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer - ovarian cancer. I’ll be aiming to wear a different frock each day this month and pair it with a different Ruby Olive accessory to raise awareness and much needed research funding!

The five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer in Australia is just 48%, 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. Frocktober supports the OCRF - the leading non-government funder of ovarian cancer research in Australia.

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!
