Testimonials from the ANZGOG community

“This trip was a significant holiday for us. It was a celebration marking 3 years since being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The joy and beauty of the landscape was breathtaking. It was exhilarating.

Ovarian cancer survivor, Jacinta Werger

“It felt hard to ask people for donations at first but I soon realised that they are donating to help women with very bad diseases. These women could be their grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters or even daughters. It was not so hard thereafter.”

ANZGOG member, Dr Gwo-Yaw Ho

“A trek for the ages, with wonderful like-minded people from all our different backgrounds combined for a life experience we will never forget. Outstanding
