Inspiring story of life pre cancer and after and creating an international charity

Come along and hear about her inspiring story - Jane will talk a little about her life pre cancer (Jane was an optometrist, volunteered for land search and rescue, lived in Canada etc…), the difficulties of living with a terminal illness, the issues facing ovarian cancer, and why research is so important and could save womens lives. Members are recommended to invite their partners along to hear Jane speak.
