TOGETHER, LET’S CHANGE OUTCOMES FOR WOMEN TODAY.
Donate to Ovarian Cancer Canada today and support a future for her.
"My name is Erin Barrett. I am 39 years old and I’m a proud mother, wife, entrepreneur and business leader who is actively engaged in giving back to community.
Four years ago, and 36 weeks into my pregnancy with my daughter Edith, I was experiencing such severe morning sickness and pain that I was forced to seek urgent medical attention. Doctors not only helped deliver my beautiful baby girl, but they also removed my volleyball-sized tumour.
In a way Edith saved my life and I am eternally grateful to her for that. But my journey with ovarian cancer didn’t end with the removal of that tumour. My personal and specific treatment plan was made possible because of ovarian cancer research.
Research is teaching us more and more about this disease and how to treat it. Through Ovarian Cancer Canada, your investment funds research by some of the best and brightest scientists and researchers in Canada.
Today, I’m surviving what we know is the most fatal gynecologic disease in Canada. I’m alive. I’m grateful, I’m inspired, and I’m hopeful because together, we can change the futures of girls and women in Canada.
Be a catalyst for change. Donate to Ovarian Cancer Canada today and support a future for her."

What People Are Saying
"Even now while I cope with an ongoing fear of recurrence, facing early menopause and – as grateful as I am for my two children – not being able to have more children because of my treatments – I know I am not alone. Much of that comes from my connection to Ovarian Cancer Canada."
