Determined to drive the conversation and necessary funding needed for ovarian cancer, CAMILLA and MARC have created two limited edition t-shirt’s, with all proceeds donated directly to Ovarian Cancer Research UNSW Sydney. The objective, to support Associate Professor Caroline Ford and her team to develop an early detection test for ovarian cancer.

Camilla and Marc lost their mother to ovarian cancer 26 years ago when they were 11 and 13 respectively, they have been motivated by their loss and the lack of conversation and awareness around this disease. The reality is, ovarian cancer is overlooked and underfunded. For the first time, Camilla and Marc are discussing their personal relationship with the disease and are proud to have leading Australian and International talent supporting this very worthy cause.

Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman are encouraging Australians to unite and speak transparently about a disease that is in desperate need of more funding and awareness.

“Along with countless others, we sadly lost our mother to ovarian cancer 26 years ago due to a late diagnosis. The pain of losing my mother so suddenly was devastating and one of the most difficult things I have ever had to encounter. We want to start a powerful conversation now, so that our children and future generations can look forward to a future where deaths from ovarian cancer are a rarity rather than the norm.” – Camilla Freeman-Topper

With minimal warning signs, no early detection test, limited funding and no cure, once ovarian cancer is diagnosed, it is often too late. In Australia three women die from the disease every day, globally it takes the lives of close to 300,000 women annually.

The first limited edition t-shirt is a collaboration with Perth-based artist Rina Freiberg – honouring and celebrating the female form, the words “OVARIES. TALK ABOUT THEM” are printed on the back of the t-shirt.

The second t-shirt features the words Power and Solidarity, representing the powerful movement that can occur when we come together to share our stories and create genuine change.

In support of the cause, the t-shirts are available online at https://www.camillaandmarc.com/ and in-store at CAMILLA AND MARC boutiques nationwide.
