Hailing from Portugal, Ana is passionate about food and sustainable farming. Recently the family launched a campaign called “Meat Your Beef” using the crowd funding model.

Help Ovarian Cancer Australia

Rural women…………would you like to help Ovarian Cancer Australia reduce the impact of ovarian cancer and improve the outcomes for women and their families living with the disease?

Would you like to host a fundraising event in February 2016?

The Afternoon Teal campaign – teal being the international colour for ovarian cancer – encourages Australians to host a fundraising event for their friends, family or colleagues. Whether it’s a high tea, picnic, golf day or gala dinner, anybody and everybody can get involved.

By hosting or attending an Afternoon Teal fundraiser during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this February, you are helping Ovarian Cancer Australia to continue to provide much-needed services to the community. You will also enable increased awareness of the signs, symptoms, and risk factors (including family history) of ovarian cancer. Your cake, cuppa, conversation and donations may just help save a life.
