Why should I get involved in WOCD?'s story

By participating in WOCD, you have the power to make a difference to the lives of the women you know and love – and of women from all around the world!

Ovarian Cancer has the lowest survival rate of all women’s cancers because there are often delays in diagnosis. Awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer is low and symptoms are often confused with symptoms of other, less severe illnesses. Currently, there is no early ovarian cancer detection test. Tragically, most women are diagnosed once the cancer has already spread, making it more difficult to treat.

By taking part in WOCD, you can help to improve survival by raising awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms and of the need for more research to improve early diagnosis and treatments.

Your voice has power!
