About The Resilience Kit
The Resilience Kit is a support guide for women with an ovarian cancer diagnosis, developed in close partnership with a team of experts working in cancer care and – most importantly – with women who have experienced living with ovarian cancer.
The Kit is 230 pages of up-to-date, evidence based information on all aspects of living with ovarian cancer – and women with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer have identified the Resilience Kit as one of the most valuable support resources we provide.
We hope women with ovarian cancer and those close to them will read the Kit and feel comforted, supported and informed. You can read as little or as much as you like, read it once or revisit it again and again, share it with friends and family or keep it for yourself – it’s your journey, and your guide.
What’s Included in the Resilience Kit
The Resilience Kit has five chapters dedicated to providing information to women with all stages of ovarian cancer.
- Finding out
