Shining a light on ovarian cancer

Shining a light on ovarian cancer

In line with #WorldOvarianCancerDay on May 8, 220 people attended the annual Katherine’s High Tea event at Victoria Park Golf Complex, where more than $20,000 was raised for ovarian cancer research and patient support at Mater.

Guests heard first-hand experiences of treating and managing ovarian cancer through speeches from Professor John Hooper, Dr Jim Coward and Mater Gynaecology Oncology Clinical Nurse Consultant Bronwyn Jennings.

Here’s just some of what our speakers had to say:

“On behalf of Mater research, I really want to thank you for your generosity. Your donations mean the world to us, and the research we can conduct, to improve the lives of women who have ovarian cancer, and hopefully prevent more women from getting ovarian cancer.” – Prof John Hooper

When you donate to Mater Research, you are helping to provide improved care and services to the women I care for at Mater.Your generous contributions are helping to further ground-breaking world-class research into treatment and care for women with ovarian cancer.” – Bronwyn Jennings

Thank you to all those who supported this successful event to ‘Shine a Light’ on ovarian cancer.
