News and Reports

Many WIs have displayed their Ovarian Cancer pantie bunting in their local shops, libraries, parks and gardens to raise awareness of the symptoms of this disease.  Burgess Hill Martlets also held a fund-raising walk for the campaign.

Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Everyday 11 women die of this disease.  We want to encourage women to seek early diagnosis and not to ignore: persistent stomach ache, difficulty eating/feeling full more quickly, persistent bloating and needing to wee more frequently.

If you or a loved one experiences one or more of these symptoms and they are persistent and increasingly frequent or a change that isn’t normal for you, speak to your GP.
