About the organisation

We are a registered charity established in 1996 with over 5,000 members that provides support and information for women affected by ovarian cancer, their families and friends. It is free to join. We provide a nurse-led telephone and email support service staffed by medical professionals that can answer clinical questions, talk through the issues, provide emotional support, advice and chat. We also have an interactive forum on our website. We publish our newsletter three times a year which is packed with information about the latest ovarian cancer research, trials and lots of news from our members. Ovacome also publishes authoritative clinical information for people affected by ovarian cancer and for health professionals, and represents the interests of women to the health service, the medical and research establishments and decision makers. We value contact with our members and have developed friendships with many of them. Every year Ovacome runs a free Members' Day with talks by top health professionals and researchers and sessions which provide opportunities for women with ovarian cancer to meet and support each other. We are here for people affected by ovarian cancer.
