Shine a light on ovarian cancer

At the age of 24, Alisi thought she was bulletproof.

Sadly, after a full medical check for a new job Alisi was told she had stage three ovarian cancer. She had two grapefruit-sized tumours—one on each ovary.

Two weeks after her initial diagnosis, Alisi underwent a full hysterectomy. Unfortunately, the cancer has spread to some of her other organs, including her diaphragm and large bowel. What was meant to be four hours, turned in to an eight hour surgery.

Will you give a gift to support life-changing research that impacts the lives of people like Alisi?

Your support of Mater Foundation helps patients like Alisi during their treatment and you’re driving vital medical research to help future cancer patients.
