Federal Labor will ensure the crucial support provided through Ovarian Cancer Australia can continue by providing $3.9 million to maintain and further expand the Teal Support Program to reach a further 1,600 women living with ovarian cancer.
This funding will ensure the Teal Support Program can continuing supporting women with ovarian cancer throughout their diagnosis, treatment and beyond until 2025-26.
The program provides holistic supportive care and crisis support to women with ovarian cancer, regardless of where they live.
Working with treatment teams, Ovarian Cancer Nurses employed through the program provide the added support so patients know they aren’t alone and unsupported.
Labor is the party of Medicare and we are committed to supporting Australian women battling ovarian cancer.
