She explains who will need surgery, when they would have it, what to expect from it and how long it takes to recover.

At Target Ovarian Cancer, we target what’s important to stop ovarian cancer devastating lives.
We give trusted information, to help people ask questions and make decisions that are right for them. We connect people with shared experiences, and we support families every step of the way.
We stand together as a powerful community for everyone facing ovarian cancer across the UK, sharing stories and raising voices, to make sure that ovarian cancer becomes a health priority.
We know that early diagnosis saves lives, so we work closely with GPs who are at the heart of this, to help them diagnose ovarian cancer faster and earlier – giving everyone the best chance of living.

We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
