Get Involved Guide
The World Ovarian Cancer Coalition is happy for you to download, use, and share these resources.
Plan your activity
Participating in World Ovarian Cancer Day couldn’t be easier! By participating you have the power to make a difference in the lives of women you know and love – and people from all around the world. Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rates of all female cancers because there are often delays in diagnosis. Awareness about the symptoms is low and they are often confused with those of other, less severe, illnesses.
It can be as simple as a social media post, encouraging others to learn and share information about ovarian cancer. Maybe you want to have a Teal party with friends or at work? Get everyone to have some fun with teal outfits and accessories – and, of course, post it for more awareness. Create your own signs, posters, etc., with our downloadable graphics found in the Campaign Materials section above, and then add your personal touch. By taking part in World Ovarian Cancer Day, you can help to improve survival by increasing awareness of symptoms and the need for more research. Together we can reach our goal of #NoWomanLeftBehind
