Heart Research Month

February is Heart Research Month, a month where all Australians are encouraged to make their heart health a priority and proactively participate in the fight against heart disease.

RedFeb is Heart Research Australia’s signature campaign during Heart Research Month. We invite you to wear RED for someone close to your heart. Whether it’s a family member, wife, husband, or that special friend who means the world to you, or in memory of someone you loved who sadly passed away due to heart disease.

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held each year in Australia to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, to share the stories of real women affected by the disease, to highlight the risk factors for ovarian cancer and educate Australians on ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment.

2021 is the year we celebrate 20 years of improving support and awareness for ovarian cancer and making incremental progress in care and treatment.

Researchers are confident we have never been closer to a breakthrough. If we can maintain this momentum, it won’t be long before more women survive ovarian cancer beyond 5 years than not.
