In 2023, it is estimated that over 1,800 Australians were diagnosed with ovarian cancer. For these people, treatment can involve invasive surgery and chemotherapy, leaving them physically and emotionally vulnerable, even after they have finished treatment.
St John of God Health Care is proud to be at the forefront of research that aims to better support patients, including following treatment for ovarian cancer through a new donor-funded clinical trial called ‘Getting the MOST (Measure of Ovarian Symptoms and Treatment concerns) out of Ovarian Cancer Follow-Up’. Led by Professor Paul Cohen, the trial has the potential to change the way in which ovarian, fallopian tube and primary peritoneal cancer patients receive follow up care.
Thank you so much for your very kind interest in The Ladybird Foundation.
2016 has been an eventful year that has seen The Ladybird Foundation embark on its initial fundraising project for the ROLLIS breast cancer clinical trial, whilst working at raising our profile in the wider Western Australian community and increasing awareness of the importance of support for breast and gynaecologic cancer research in WA.
We have recently successfully completed our 2016 Audit and were extremely fortunate that this was undertaken as a pro bono service by Greenwich & Co.
Two new Directors have recently joined the Board of The Ladybird Foundation Limited, adding value to our skillset and governance experience.
