Go Dry this July for Ovarian Cancer Australia
Ovarian Cancer Australia is the independent national not-for-profit organisation, supporting women with ovarian cancer.
Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer
have extremely complex support needs. More than 1500 Australian women are
diagnosed every year; tragically the survival rate is less than 50 per cent -
diagnosis means that very suddenly women and their families are forced to deal
with a poor prognosis, brutal, debilitating surgery and because of the high
recurrence rate of ovarian cancer, the fear that the cancer may come back.
Our focus is to provide care and support for those affected by ovarian cancer; and represent them by leading change. Our vision is to save lives and ensure no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone.
OCA’s vision is that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone and this year, funding from Dry July will fund the psychological, practical and emotional support services we offer to women diagnosed with ovarian cancer – the deadliest female cancer in Australia.

If you have a special occasion in July, you can always buy a Golden Ticket. A Golden Ticket gives a Dry July participant a night off their challenge. For a minimum $25 donation, even a night off can still make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.
Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year. We advise heavy drinkers or people dependent on alcohol to speak with their GP before signing up to Dry July.
