There are so many wonderful women (and men!) out there using their voice to raise awareness of this horrible disease. Here are a couple of them.
Watch this space as I will be adding many more amazing people here.
- Jill Emberson is an ABC journalist with a wonderful career spanning triple j, Quantum, Greenpeace and the finance industry. Most recently, she was the presenter of Mornings at ABC Newcastle. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016, Jill has created an extremely informative and touching podcast on ovarian cancer. Still Jill details what it is like to be living with terminal ovarian cancer, not just for Jill but for her family and friends as well. Jill is a wonderful advocate for ovarian cancer, speaking in Parliament and making noise for further funding into research.
- Heather Hawkins became an ultra marathon runner after being diagnosed with and surviving ovarian cancer. She dedicates her runs to all those women battling with the disease and is a great ambassador and advocate.
