birthday fundraising for the ocrf

Are you looking for a way to give back during your birthday celebrations? Why not create a birthday fundraiser and raise funds for ovarian cancer research?

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal reproductive cancer in Australia, taking more than 1000 lives each year. With no early detection test and very few effective treatment options, there is an urgent need for more research into this disease. Through your birthday, you can help the OCRF fund more innovative research from around Australia and New Zealand.

Your birthday fundraiser could help fund the next breakthrough.

The average five-year survival rate for those diagnosed with ovarian cancer is only 48%. For those diagnosed in the advanced stage, which is most cases, the chances of survival are only 29%.

The single greatest barrier to improved survival is the lack of an early detection test for ovarian cancer. Research shows that if ovarian cancer can be detected early, in stages 1a or 1b, survival rates could improve to 90% and above. This would save thousands of lives.

Create a birthday fundraiser today and help the OCRF invest in ovarian cancer research to save lives.
