We’re calling on all Australians to host an Afternoon Teal with Ovarian Cancer Australia and help reduce the impact of ovarian cancer and improve the outcomes for women like Kasie and their families. 

At 28 years old, Kasie was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She needed emergency surgery to remove a 27cm mass. When she woke up, the doctor told her that they had to give her a full hysterectomy—removing both ovaries, cervix and uterus. Kasie was going through a cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy and menopause.

 

"I'm thankful that I came across Ovarian Cancer Australia. What I found so comforting was hearing the stories of other women my age who’d been diagnosed, and hearing about how they dealt with the disease. It helped me feel less alone."  

"It’s still hard to talk about but I’m happy to share my story and what I’ve been through if it makes just one other woman feel less alone.”  

Our Afternoon Teal campaign encourages people to host a fundraising event for their friends, family or colleagues. Whether it’s a high tea, picnic, golf day, movie night or gala dinner, anybody and everybody can get involved!

 

Ovarian Cancer Australia relies on our fundraising community to be able to help us continue to deliver our awareness, support, advocacy and research programs. Ovarian Cancer Australia is the only national organisation that provides direct support to those living with ovarian cancer – both the women experiencing the disease and their loved ones – through support groups, phone support, online resources and more.
