Until now, we have never posted fundraising content on the forum for Ovacome Ovarian Cancer Charity. However, now more than ever we are relying on support from those of you who feel able to do so.
March is normally our key fundraising month when during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month we see our community come together to raise funds and support us. This income helps us throughout the year. However, this year we have seen our income drop significantly since the start of March due to COVID-19. This is entirely understandable as many people are beginning to feel the financial pressures of not working.
The government has provided a range of measures to provide financial support to businesses and at this time Ovacome is unable to access any of them. We simply do not meet the criteria.
Today we are launching a fundraising campaign where you can donate to dedicate a butterfly on our website to someone you love. You can share your thoughts and a photo and then share with your family and friends.
The page to dedicate a butterfly is here: visufund.com/ovacome-ovaria...
If you are able to support us we would be very grateful. You can help to ensure that no one has to face ovarian cancer alone and end the isolation that many experience by supporting our work.
As a member of our community said: "I have found the advice given by your knowledgeable staff at Ovacome, the website and literature to be so supportive. The Ova to You sessions are most welcoming and informative. Speaking to others about their experiences and treatment is priceless".
Thank you very much.
Ovacome Support and all the Ovacome Team
