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 49%, 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.

Please help me support the vital work of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF), and the dedicated researchers they fund, by making a donation to my page. Every dollar counts!

Did you know that the only way to confirm an ovarian cancer diagnosis is through invasive surgery and biopsy.?How awful this must be 🥲

Fact: If caught in stages 1a or 1b, survival rates for ovarian cancer patients are as high as 92%. However, only 19% of cases are diagnosed early due to vagueness of symptoms and lack of an early detection test.
