Step Up for Ovarian Cancer


Women need your help now more than ever.

This September we are asking you to Step Up for Ovarian Cancer. We are challenging you to walk, run, cycle - it's up to you. Be active and raise vital funds for research to find better treatments to help women with low-grade serous ovarian cancer live longer.

We have partnered with organisations in Australia, Canada The United Kingdom and The United States to set up fundraising pathways to ensure every dollar or pound you raise goes towards LGSOC research.

Women with low-grade serous ovarian cancer tend to be younger, and with current treatments their cancer is often incurable. Up to 6% of all ovarian cancer is LGSOC, it is overlooked and underfunded, but you can help us change that!

Head to your country's page to find out how to set up a Step Up fundraiser in your hometown.

Alisha's Story

Alisha Thomson "I was just 27 when I was diagnosed with low grade ovarian cancer. Overnight my life changed forever.

My life is now full of scans, chemotherapy and other treatments. In the midst of this I try to keep active and find enjoyment in the present."

I'm not ready to stop living. Please help spread awareness this 'Step-tember' and fundraise for research to give women like me more time."
