May 8th marks the first World Ovarian Cancer Day where organisations from around the world will unite to educate their communities about ovarian cancer and its symptoms.
Ovacome along with other patient organisations from around the world came together at the initial meetings to discuss the common issues surrounding ovarian cancer and are please to be a part of the first global ovarian cancer awareness event which we hope will build a sense of solidarity in the fight against ovarian cancer.
How can you get involved?
Join Ovacome for a tour of London on Tuesday to help spread awareness of the first World Ovarian Cancer Day. They will be taking pictures and handing out ribbons at various popular and iconic sites around London.
They will be meeting at 10.30am on Tuesday at the Ovacome offices and plan to head to London Bridge, Westminster, Green Park and finish at the Transport Museum, Covent Garden.
If you are free for a couple of hours then join them when you can and Ovacome will also provide Ovacome t-shirts for volunteers to wear and materials to hand out.
If you are unable to join Ovacome in London and still want to help support World Ovarian Cancer Day then you can still hand out leaflets, put up posters and send in pictures of activities taking place where you are!
As this is global campaign we want to share our participation with the other global organisations involved so please help us to spread the word by using social media sites to inform others of how you are supporting the first World Ovarian Cancer Day. You can send you pictures or post them to Ovacome’s Facebook and Twitter pages so they can share them with their wider community.
