Why OVCARE?

The OVCARE Research Team is proudly supported by The UBC Faculty of Medicine, The BC Cancer Foundation and The VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. The purpose of our Full Circle Fashion & Art Event is to raise funds and local awareness in support of OVCARE and their ongoing commitment to research in Ovarian cancer, the most serious of all gynecologic cancers. In British Columbia, we have the best outcomes (survival rates) for ovarian cancer in the world. But the sad fact remains: Ovarian cancer has a 75% mortality rate. Research is the only hope we have of saving the lives of women who are suffering with this disease.

Dr. Dianne Miller (Chair of BC’s provincial gynecologic tumor group) and the OVCARE Team have been at the forefront of Ovarian cancer research in their efforts to develop better diagnostic tools and improved treatment protocols for the disease and ultimately, to find a cure.  OVCARE is leading the world with their B.C. policy in Ovarian cancer prevention, which has recently gained international support.

Dr. David Huntsman (UBC), and Michelle Woo (BC Cancer Research Centre) are available for interviews along side Ovarian Cancer survivor, Donna Pepin. We hope through media interviews we can raise more awareness for Ovarian Cancer research and fundraising for this cause.
