GP’s ovarian cancer mission

A Rushden doctor is cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

Dr Victoria Barber is part way through her 1,000-mile challenge and is raising money for Target Ovarian Cancer.

She said: “Ovarian cancer is little known. Only four per cent of women know about the symptoms and it is not diagnosed on a smear test. If you have abdominal pain, bloating, bladdder irritation and feel full up and these are new, persistent and frequent, then see your GP.”
