Raising Awareness of Ovarian Cancer

Spreading the word on ovarian cancer in the North West

Dianne Oxberry was one of the BBC’s longest-serving presenters, much loved by viewers who welcomed her into their homes every day.

When Dianne suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in January 2019 after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, there was an incredible outpouring of love and grief from people across the North West.

Initially overwhelmed by the public response, Dianne’s husband quickly decided to harness all that amazing positive energy.

In the days immediately following her memorial at Manchester Cathedral, he founded the Dianne Oxberry Trust.

The Charity has now focused its efforts on raising awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer to secure faster diagnosis and better outcomes so that other families have more time together than Dianne had with hers.

The mission

Is to educate and inform women in the highest risk groups across the North West about the combination of symptoms of ovarian cancer so they are able to present earlier to their GPs and secure a speedier diagnosis.
