Demand more ovarian cancer research funding

A new electronic petition calls on the Minister of Health for an immediate investment of an additional $10 million in federal funding for ovarian cancer research. The Government of Canada will be obliged to respond to this appeal if just 500 signatures are collected.

Petition to the Minister of Health

  • Ovarian cancer is the most fatal women’s cancer in Canada; and this year, 2,800 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 1,750 will die from the disease;
  • Outcomes for ovarian cancer have not changed in 50 years, treatments have not advanced significantly since the 1990s;
  • Despite these facts, investment in ovarian cancer research lags well behind that of other cancers;
