Thirty three year old Lou Quinn was admitted to The Royal Women’s Hospital on 1 May 2013, complaining of mild abdominal pain and fatigue. Just 12 days later she passed away as a result of ovarian cancer.

The Lou Quinn Ovarian Cancer Fund began at The Royal Women's Hospital in response to Louise's request that research, knowledge and education into ovarian cancer be promoted. 

Since its inception the Fund has raised over $36,514.54

The Giving Gold for Lou community continues to raise much
needed funds and honours Lou's memory.


Symptoms that may indicate ovarian cancer  are
vague and may include one or more of the following:

•  abdominal bloating or a feeling of fullness
•  loss of appetite
•  unexplained weight gain
•  constipation
•  heartburn
•  back, abdominal or pelvic pain
•  frequent urination
•  fatigue
•  indigestion
•  pain during sexual intercourse

These symptoms are often related to more common, less serious health problems and most women will have these symptoms at some time. However, if you notice any unusual changes or these symptoms persist, visit your doctor.
