Not on my watch
Not on My Watch is a call for change in ovarian cancer care, to empower women facing advanced ovarian cancer and their loved ones to be proactive in managing this devastating disease. Women may no longer need to “watch and wait” for their cancer to return, as research and science are advancing at a rapid pace.
Our way forward
Our Way Forward, created by GSK with input from the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) and the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA), is a call to action that encourages women living with ovarian cancer, their loved ones, and healthcare providers to rethink how they talk about ovarian cancer and ways to work together to navigate the physical and emotional challenges that the disease brings.
