Target Ovarian Cancer

Target Ovarian Cancer is the national ovarian cancer charity working to save lives and help women diagnosed live their lives to the full, wherever they are in the UK. They do this by:

  • improving early diagnosis
  • finding new treatments
  • providing support for women

They invest in:

  • Improving early diagnosis through training women and GPs, and campaigning for a nationally-led programme to improve symptoms awareness
  • Their medical research programme, the only UK-wide dedicated funding for ovarian cancer research
  • Running a national support programme for all women affected by ovarian cancer, via events, publications and information

Their work is distinctive because:

  • We have a programme of work across the UK
  • We reach out directly to women, researchers and health professionals
  • We tackle the three biggest barriers to progress – late diagnosis, no new treatments, and the isolation so often felt by women with ovarian cancer
