Pants to Ovarian Cancer Campaign 


March is the WI’s Ovarian Cancer awareness month.  Last year fourteen members of the West Chiltington WI came together for a workshop to make bunting

to be displayed in local shops, hairdressers and cafes in West Chiltington and Storrington. This year local businesses have again supported our campaign to raise awareness of the symptoms and early diagnosis of this cruel disease.

  • Persistent stomach pain

  • Difficulty eating/feeling full more quickly

  • Persistent bloating

  • Need to wee more frequently

If you or anyone you know is suffering from any of these symptoms, consistently, seek advice from your GP.

Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in women. Although the risk of developing ovarian cancer increases with age, there are cases in younger women so it’s important that all women know the symptoms to look out for.

The earlier ovarian cancer is diagnosed the easier it is to treat. However, because the early signs of ovarian cancer can be similar to conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), it is often not diagnosed until it has spread, and a cure is not possible.
