Pathfinder report can build awareness of ovarian cancer - Flynn

Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Órlaithí Flynn has welcomed the launch of the Pathfinder report, Transforming Futures for Women with Ovarian Cancer.

Speaking after the launch of the report Flynn said: 

"This report is important for the nearly 200 women who are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in the north of Ireland every year.

"The report identifies actions on awareness, diagnosis, treatment and support which are needed to deliver the outcomes women with ovarian cancer here need and deserve

"We heard from the experience of an ovarian cancer sufferer and her determination to raise awareness of the disease and its symptoms within our society was inspiring.

"Only 36% of women with ovarian cancer here are diagnosed in stage 1 where survival is highest, so raising awareness of the disease is vitally important.

"Awareness of ovarian cancer must continue to be raised within our society, particularly amongst women and health practitioners."
