For every woman everywhere, wear a white shirt
In the lead up to World Ovarian Cancer Day on May 8th, there is a campaign to encourage everyone to think about how they can use their #PowerfulVoice for women living with ovarian cancer.⁠ Despite the difficult times, we find ourselves in, we all have the power to lift each other up and be a part of the chorus of voices calling for change.⁠

Everyday four Australian women will find out they have ovarian cancer. Receiving this news is scary enough, but even more so at a time like this when many women may not have their usual support networks around them.⁠

The White Shirt Campaign assists to raise the voices of women living with ovarian cancer and raise funds essential to supporting more innovative research to find an early detection test and also discover better, more effective treatments that will help women survive their diagnosis long term.⁠ Take the pledge to wear a White Shirt and use your #PowerfulVoice on May 8.⁠ More info available here.

This white shirt isn't just a wardrobe staple - this white shirt can save lives. ⁠ One woman in Australia dies from ovarian cancer every 8 hours. That means in your average workday, like today, a woman will lose her battle against Australia's most deadly female cancer. This campaign promotes ovarian cancer research, and the critical need for an early detection test. ⁠
