CAMILLA AND MARC Is Helping to Create an Early Ovarian Cancer Test With New Capsule Collection
Despite it being the deadliest female cancer, in 2022, there’s still no test for ovarian cancer.
Affecting millions of women each year, and with close to 300,000 new cases diagnosed annually, we need more dialogue, more awareness, and more research.
Thankfully, we’re not the only ones that feel this way. In the third year of its “OVARIES. TALK ABOUT THEM.” campaign, Australian fashion brand CAMILLA AND MARC has announced a cumulative $1 million fundraising goal as a part of its 2022 campaign.
“My mother passed away 28 years ago and statistics have barely changed, largely due to funding and awareness,” Creative Director, Camilla Freeman Topper, says.
“Through this bold campaign, we are driving a new conversation for ovarian cancer so that women can feel confident to talk about their
bodies, and rightly claim what they deserve as a basic healthcare right.”
The campaign aims to fund the Ovarian Cancer Research at the UNSW Ovarian Cancer Research Group and the work of Associate Professor Caroline Ford, which will ultimately go into creating an early detection test for ovarian cancer.
“Women’s health issues have been overlooked and underfunded for too long,” says Associate Professor Caroline Ford UNSW.
“Ovarian cancer is a devastating and deadly disease, frequently diagnosed
too late. Women deserve better and I’m proud to be part of a global movement shining a light on this disease and leading research to improve outcomes for all women.
“Funding from this campaign will directly fund research in my lab towards an early detection test for ovarian cancer.”
To date, “OVARIES. TALK ABOUT THEM.” has raised over half a million dollars, and includes an expanded unisex and children’s capsule collection of apparel and accessories, and national in-store activations. 100 percent of proceeds from the capsule collection will be donated directly to the cause, so there’s a very good reason to go and shop it.
