Many women find that one of the most challenging aspects of a cancer diagnosis is finding someone to talk to who can understand firsthand what it is they are going through. We hope you will be able to find these connections within the Ovarian Cancer Australia Connect Forum.

Engage as much or as little as you are comfortable with and opt in and out of groups at any time simply by updating your profile. The forum is supported by Online Community Leaders who are either women with ovarian cancer or a person who has someone very close to them experiencing an ovarian cancer diagnosis. There is no better place than here to feel like part of a community that understands YOU.
