A night of giving celebrated at Mater Ball
For around 1400 Australian women, this year will forever be known as “the year I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.”*
And tragically for two-thirds of these women—who could be your mum, sister, daughter, wife or dear friend—they won’t survive. All because the symptoms are so hard to recognise and ovarian cancer is often caught too late.
These statistics are frightening, but what’s more alarming is that they haven’t changed in 15 years.
Here at Mater, we think it’s time for change.
The only way we can change these statistics, and give women like Katherine a brighter future, is by investing in vital medical research—and that’s where we need your help.
By hosting a Tea for Teal, you will be helping Mater Research continue their work into improving treatments and survival rates in ovarian cancer for future generations.
