GO Girls

GO Girls is a national charity supporting women with gynaecological cancers as well as campaigning to raise awareness of these cancers.  GO Girls recognise that managing any cancer is difficult. This is particularly so in gynaecological cancers where survival, particularly, in ovarian cancer is poor and has not improved significantly for many years. We offer a private online chat support group where many women find value in seeking peer to peer support. We work closely with all charities in this sector believing a co-ordinated and co-joined approach is essential to facilitating change in an area of health that has remained notoriously under-funded and has often been shrouded in taboos.  We are supported by an eminent number of clinical professionals who are pioneers in this area of health.
