RoCan fights ovarian cancer


Ovarian cancer is the most lethal form of gynaecological cancer.

One woman will die every 10 hours from this horrible disease.

Currently there is no reliable community based screening test for early stage ovarian cancer.  Many believe the pap smear will detect all gynaecological abnormalities but this is not the case

What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

These are some of the warning signs.  If you experience any of these for a period of time, please consult your doctor.

  • Feeling Bloated
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Abdominal discomfort and /or backache
  • Gas or indigestion not associated with eating
  • Feeling of fullness, even after a light meal
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Breathing problems
  • Menstrual Change
  • Fatigue

RoCan is a trust that has been established with the help of the Rotary Club of Williamstown.  We raise funds which help us raise the awareness of ovarian cancer and help with research into the cause and cure of the disease.

RoCan is proud to be  a community Partner with the Olivia Newton John Cancer Wellness Centre.  The Cancer and Wellness centre will include world class facilities for international research.
