twice a year the “Deutsche Stiftung für Eierstockkrebs” publishes their magazine “Die zweite Stimme”. For the upcoming (Q4 2018/Q1 2019) issue we are looking for photos of long-term-survivors to bolster up affected women.
Beside this campaign, where we would like you to send in your personal photos, we are going to additionally hire a professional photographer for fall/autumn 2018 to shoot portraits of our patients.
Our main goal is to set up a circulating exhibition with the collection of these artistically staged photos.
We would like to point out the strong women who are constantly fighting against ovarian cancer.
Please feel free to get to us with our contact form.
Besides German, Austrian and Belgian, also Swiss patients are now ready for recruitment.

Jalid Sehouli, MD, professor, director of the Clinic Campus Virchow and Campus Benjamin Franklin Charité Center Gynecology, Charité – Universitatsmedizin Berlin, discusses the unmet needs for patients with ovarian cancer.
There are many unmet needs, says Sehouli, because patients with ovarian cancer live longer but the cure rate still remains low. Increasing the standard of care could improve patient outcomes since not all patients receive the adequate treatment, explains Sehouli.
Further biomarker development could improve the identification of patients who need a maintenance approach.
