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
