Only 29% of women with advanced stage ovarian cancer
will survive beyond 5 years.
But with an early detection test, survival rates could improve to 90%.

2022 Ambassador spotlight: Why Jordan Turner wears a white shirt
“The White Shirt Campaign means a lot to me as someone who has lived through ovarian cancer. It is such an iconic fundraiser, showcasing a great partnership in the OCRF and Witchery. This campaign means that we can raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research and reach a much wider audience."
OCRF & White Shirt Campaign Ambassador
OCRF Ambassador and ovarian cancer survivor Jordan Turner was diagnosed just days before her 28th birthday. She had recently lost weight rapidly and for no apparent reason, prompting a doctor's visit to investigate what may be wrong.
She had a 16cm tumour on her left ovary which was later diagnosed through surgery as Stage 4 dysgerminoma (germ cell tumour), a rare type of ovarian cancer. Two weeks after surgery to remove the tumour, a 12-week intensive chemotherapy regime commenced. Jordan's prognosis was good, due to the type of ovarian cancer typically being less aggressive and more receptive to treatment.
Now healthy and having been in remission for 2 years, she considers herself one of the "lucky ones". But surviving ovarian cancer shouldn't come down to luck.
By purchasing a white shirt or hosting a #WhiteShirtCampaign fundraising event, you can help fund vital research to find an early detection test and take luck out of the equation.
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.
