About us

We are here to keep the conversation, that starts each time a person gets diagnosed with ovarian cancer, going.

Why wasn't it diagnosed sooner?  Why is the research into developing an accurate early detection test underfunded?

We are the families of the heroic women that have been diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.  Whether their battle was won or lost, they are our heroes.

Why do we hate teal?

Teal is the colour associated with ovarian cancer.  

  • An estimated 3,000 Canadian women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2021.

  • An estimated 1,950 will die from it.

  • It is the 5th most common cause of cancer death OVERALL

  • 7 in 10 of those diagnosed will die within 5 years

  • 80% of cases are diagnosed at LATE STAGE (3 OR 4)

  • Ovarian cancer is the least funded of all cancers

  • There is NO early screening test

  • Anyone born with ovaries is at risk 

  • The symptoms often go unrecognized 

Ovarian Cancer is a silent killer, and it's time to change that.  It's time to fund research that will change lives globally.  It's time to pay attention to our bodies, to educate ourselves and to advocate for our own health and well being.  Ovarian cancer isn't pretty, is a brutal battle that far too many don't survive.  For those that survive treatment, there is the constant fear of recurrence.  There is nothing pretty about mental health issues.  So, until this changes, we will hate teal.
