My target 295000 Steps

I’m taking part in the Walk in Her Name Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action.

Every year, 295,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer globally. Approximately half of these women will not survive beyond five years. I’m taking 295,000 steps in May to raise funds for life-saving research that will help these women, and the next generation, survive.

Please help me take 295,000 steps, raise £295 and move research forward. #stepforeverywoman

Walking in Her Name

Friday 1st May
Many of us have lost or know someone who has lost someone dear to cancer. 

I knew nothing about ovarian cancer until very recently, when a lost someone very dear to me at the end of last year. 

Ovarian cancer is a silent killer. More often than not, there are no symptoms until quite late in the illness, when the cancer has already advanced to its more aggressive stages. As women, we tend to put it down to our busy lives, or ‘that time of the month’ and ignore symptoms like persistent bloating, discomfort in the tummy or pelvic area, or feeling tired all the time These symptoms are not easy to recognise as they are similar to those of some common conditions like irritable bowel syndrome. 

The earlier ovarian cancer is diagnosed and treated, the better the chance of a cure so please do not put off seeing your GP if you experience any of these symptoms, even during the current pandemic. 

It is worth noting that unlike cervical, bowel and breast cancers, there is still no reliable, effective screening method for ovarian cancer. Ovarian Cancer Action is hoping to change this through funding research into the development of the world's first ovarian cancer screening tool.
