Thanks to the incredible fundraising of Dry July participants, Ovarian Cancer Australia has raised an astounding $445,325!
Despite the immense challenges of 2020, it has been an incredible year for Dry July fundraising – the efforts of participants such as you will enable Ovarian Cancer Australia to directly support women with ovarian cancer and their families with these initiatives:
• The Younger Women’s Network: providing support and information sessions for younger women who can connect with others in a similar situation, reducing feelings of isolation when they need it most.
• Support for carers: a new project that will assist carers – particularly male carers – to provide the best support for their loved ones.
• Social worker: They are adding a social worker to the mix of their Support Team, providing practical assistance for women and their families.
• Ovarian cancer nurses: Additional specialised nurses are particularly vital right now due to the increase in the number of calls to their Helpline, and an increase in the intensity of distress many women are experiencing due to the impact of COVID.
