On behalf of the dedicated team at the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) and our partners at Witchery, thank you for your interest in supporting the White Shirt Campaign.
Currently, one woman dies every 8 hours from ovarian cancer in Australia because there is no early detection test.
That's right, in your average work day, another woman will be lost to this insidious disease.
Unlike breast and other more common cancers, ovarian cancer has a very poor survival rate.
Only 20-25% of women survive beyond 5 years when diagnosed with
But with an early detection test, survival rates improve to 90%.
The OCRF is on a mission to make early detection a reality. Research is the solution and we need your help to raise the funds needed to get more research projects up and running. Sign up to hold a White Shirt Day in your workplace or host a White Shirt event with your friends and family.
You can fundraise throughout May or simply hold a one-off event with your friends or colleagues. White Shirt Day (May 8) is a Friday this year so you could even suggest the usual 'Friday Night Drinks' is White Shirt themed! There are so many simple ways to get involved, click below for more ideas!
Remember to share your events on social media and use the hashtag #WHITESHIRTCAMPAIGN
