Stand Agency will raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer

Ovarian Cancer Action is the UK’s ovarian cancer research charity. From funding scientists on the front line, to mobilising millions of people across the UK to take action – Ovarian Cancer Action says it is driven by a vision of a world without ovarian cancer and a belief that it can create a better future.

Stand Agency has been briefed to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and encourage women to take action and get checked.

Using a combination of traditional and social media, and with the help of celebrity ambassadors, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month will aim to get people talking about the disease – whether that’s women, concerned about ovarian cancer, or friends and family members who can encourage others to seek help.

Jess Champion, head of comms at Ovarian Cancer Action, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Stand Agency for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. One of the main reasons that survival rates are so low is late diagnosis.

“At an early stage it is very treatable but at a later stage it is a killer – we are talking a 90 per cent chance of survival against a 22 per cent chance. That, along with the fact that’s there’s no screening, is why symptoms awareness is so vital.

Laura Oliphant, co-founder and MD of Stand Agency, added: “There is a misconception that ovarian cancer doesn’t have any symptoms, but often the warning signs are there. We want to encourage women to listen to their bodies and their instincts and when they seek a medical view, ensure they are listened to.”
