Ovarian Cancer Research Faces Funds Crunch

Ovarian cancer otherwise referred to as the silent killer is one of the leading causes of death among the female population. The famous comedian Lynda Gibson died of ovarian cancer two years ago. // Previous year ovarian cancer was the main cause of death of 800 Australian women. But the sad state is that the Federal Government, through the National Health and Medical Research Council, allotted only $3.8 million for research into ovarian cancer.

An early detection test and public awareness can reverse the situation of ovarian cancer. But, without substantial research funding, it will be a long wait before there is such a test which could detect it presence in the early stage.

Many fund raising events are conducted as part of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Week. One such is the fund-raising walk/run. This attracted more than a thousand participants in an effort to raise $50,000.
