Our Mission / Objective

WomenCan Our mission is to engage the community to fund pioneering discoveries that will enable women with a gynaecological cancer to live better and live longer.
We support the peak national research group, ANZGOG, by funding
their programs to improve life for women with a gynaecological
cancer.

Our Services

WomenCan encourages support for ANZGOG’s research programs, which include: Fund For New Research – promotes the development of investigator-led studies from initial concept to full study.  Grants of up to $100,000 are awarded to gynaecological cancer researchers to pursue innovative concepts that may lead to a future ANZGOG study.

Ovarian cancer research program – OASIS funding signal seeking studies – A signal-seeking clinical trial is like sending out a scouting party to map the terrain ahead. These trials are nimble and responsive to new information, showing the way forward for the main group. Professor Michael Friedlander, AM ANZGOG Co-Founder

Our Beneficiaries

WomenCan believes the power of the collective, united in a
common purpose, can make a real difference in the lives of women
with gynaecological cancers.
We have seen first-hand how strong, determined and courageous
women are in the face of a life-threatening disease. We believe that
WomenCan be even stronger with you, the community, by their
side.
With your support and energy, together, we can raise funds for
ANZGOG’s pioneering research, to enable women to live better and live longer.
