Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF)
- National Reach
Every ten hours, one woman dies from ovarian cancer in Australia. The key to changing this statistic is early detection. Ovarian cancer is an insidious disease, often known as a “silent-killer” as symptoms are vague and often strike without warning. Unlike many other cancers there is no early detection test. Consequently ovarian cancer is often diagnosed in its late stages and only 20%-30% of women will survive beyond five years as compared to a 80-100% survival rate when detected early. The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation is Australia’s pre-eminent ovarian cancer research body. Our goal is to raise awareness and vital funds for the development of an early detection test that will save women’s lives.
