'I’d never heard of ovarian cancer - until Mum got it'
Listen now
"Ovarian cancer wasn't even on my radar."  February is ovarian cancer awareness month in Australia. It's a cruel disease, with 70% of patients discovering the cancer in advanced stages, and a shocking 49% five-year survival rate.  In this episode of The Briefing, our producer Simon Beaton sits down to speak with his mum, who was diagnosed less than six months ago, as well as Lisa Finuncane, who has been living with ovarian cancer for over fourteen years, to discuss their experiences of living with the cancer, and what they hope their futures will look like.  This is part two of our special series on ovarian cancer - listen to part one here.
