Last year I lost my beloved and beautiful Mam to ovarian cancer. It's a cancer that is extremely difficult to detect, especially in the early-mid stages, and all too commonly it isn't diagnosed until it's too late. Ovarian cancer is poorly publicised in the media, and the survival rate is shockingly low. There has been very little improvement in diagnostic methods, treatment or survival rates since the 1970s.
I'm doing the Cancer Research UK Night Walk in memory of my beloved Mam and to raise funds to support research into effective detection methods and treatments for ovarian cancer. This is a shockingly horrible and insidious cancer that urgently needs extra funding and publicity.
