A WOMEN with ovarian cancer from Towcester was at the House of Commons this week to help launch a campaign to persuade MPs to save 500 lives a year.

Diana Dallyn, a member of South Northants Council was at Westminster on Monday to help the charity Target Ovarian Cancer (TOC) to launch the Let’s Talk campaign.

Figures show a third of ovarian cancers are diagnosed by accident and TOC are campaigning for greater funding and awareness among patients and doctors,

Mrs Dallyn said: “If women don’t go to their GP and GPs don’t know the symptoms of ovarian cancer, how will women be diagnosed in time to save their lives?
