Raising Awareness – Woman’s Health

During my recent hospital admission ‘Woman’s Health’ – a website dedicated to providing women advice on a range of female health issues, picked up one of my blog posts featured on Ovarian Cancer Action and published it for their readers (in their own words).

Why Ovarian Cancer Remains Difficult to Diagnose

Together we will raise more awareness about Ovarian Cancer.

Did you know smear tests DO NOT screen for Ovarian Cancer?

World Ovarian Cancer Day (Video)

Today is World Ovarian Cancer Day and it’s all about raising awareness for ovarian cancer symptoms.

Coincidently I find myself in hospital today waiting for my surgery tomorrow to remove all visible cancer! So, to mark the day I’m taking the opportunity to share a video with you about my symptoms which led to my stage four ovarian cancer diagnosis in January.

If you would like to get involved you are invited to wear teal today to show support for women who, like me, are affected by ovarian cancer. Teal is the colour for ovarian cancer in the same way pink is the colour for breast cancer.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the symptoms I discuss in the video. Ovarian cancer is not just caused by the BRCA gene and can affect women of any age as I am evidence to.

You can also donate to allow Macmillan nurses to support more women in future.

Thank you!

Love and light, Fi xx

Press: A Reporter Comes for a Cuppa…

Busy (and tiring) day today…aside from usual hospital stuff I had a journalist from Tay FM come round to our house for a cuppa this afternoon wanting a chat about my story to raise awareness for World Cancer Day this Thursday – apparently it’s going to every radio station in Scotland (no pressure then!)

You can listen to me talk about my journey so far here. I hope you like it.
