Other Useful Information

Paper dolls holding hands


On this page we've included links to independent Facebook ovarian cancer support groups (we also run our own NZ support group which you can find information on here) and other useful information including: the most comprehensive ovarian cancer guide written for patients that we've found, help co-ordinating support, subsidised physiotherapy and exercise classes, helpful phone numbers and links to overseas ovarian cancer charities.

We hope you find it useful.
