Ladies of Marlborough Golf Club's cheque for the Target Ovarian Cancer charity

On Tuesday (April 5), in the presence of a large group of the Club's lady members, she presented a cheque to the charity's Wiltshire representative, Anne Ainsworth.

In a brief talk following the presentation, Ms Ainsworth gave a moving account of her diagnosis and her on-going treatment for this disease. 

In the United Kingdom about 7,000 women a year are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  

Just under half those diagnosed with the disease will live for at least five years.  As with most cancers, survival rates depend on how soon it is diagnosed.

Ms Ainsworth writes a helpful and informative blog on the charity's website - which can be read here.
