Ovarian Cancer Action

Women V Cancer is a cycling phenomenon which is literally saving the lives of women diagnosed in the UK with ovarian cancer.  

Whilst far less well known than some other cancers, ovarian cancer claims the life of a woman in the UK every 2 hours and is the most lethal of the gynaecological cancers.

Ovarian Cancer Action is determined to drive up survival rates by funding world-class research into its causes, treatment and detection at the UK’s only and Europe’s largest, dedicated ovarian cancer research centre. All of the research work undertaken there is translational and has to show a clear path back to the clinic.

We also raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer with women and healthcare professionals throughout the UK thus enabling women to act, and GPs to intervene, at the earliest possible stage giving the best possible chance of survival.

The money you raise through cycling will truly make an enormous difference to our work. To see just how we will use your fundraising please watch a very short film.

Thank you.
