Ovarian Cancer Awareness

How much do you know about Ovarian Cancer? March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and  last night we were privileged to welcome Nicky Thompson and Sylvia Pearl from the Dianne Oxberry Trust. They  spoke about Dianne Oxberry who was an English broadcaster and meteorologist, best known as a long-serving TV and radio presenter for BBC North West. She presented weather forecasts for the regional news programme North West Tonight for 23 years until her death in 2019 of Ovarian Cancer. The Trust was set up in Dianne’s name to spread the word about this disease which often goes unnoticed by women, their family and friends. Their message was very much act before it is too late.

Here are some of the main symptoms to look out for but there are others. For more information about the symptoms and the work of the Trust go to
