JOIN US IN CELEBRATING WORLD OVARIAN CANCER DAY ON THE 8TH OF MAY!

This year, we will share in a worldwide campaign launched from Berlin the emotionally moving video „Chocolate“ will go viral around  the world on social media.

On May 8, this video clip will be simultaneously posted in more than 100 social communities worldwide for the first time, thus connecting and informing as many people as possible about this rare but very serious gynaecological disease. The campaign is supported by the largest European and worldwide medical groups for ovarian cancer, including European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO), Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup, International Gynecological Cancer Society (IGCS) and  European Network of Gynaecological Cancer Advocacy Groups (ENGAGe).

The protagonist of the video clip is a young woman, Nancy Dietze, who in her mid-20’s received the shocking diagnosis of ovarian cancer. With this result she not only fought with cancer, but also campaigned during her therapy for more attention and support for this disease. She left the video to the important educational work of the German Ovarian Cancer Foundation. Co-founder of the Foundation and also doctor of the protagonist Professor Jalid Sehouli was deeply impressed by the gift from his patient. „We were immediately taken with the film and wanted as many people as possible to see it worldwide. That's how the idea was born to translate this film into as many languages as possible and post it worldwide.“

Using sensitive words, great music and lots of chocolate the video shows what goes on inside a patient after receiving the diagnosis and what emotions such as anger, grief and hope are experienced. Together with the renowned photo and video artist Daniel Hetzel and the composer Mathias Fritsche, a moving video clip was created.

The imagery in this video leaves the viewer breathless

and at the same time respectful of the protagonist's

power and it also encourages people.

At the beginning of the year, Nancy Dietze died at the

age of 31 from the consequences of ovarian cancer.

The event and the video will touch many people even

after her death.

 

PARSGO will be honoured to support this campaign

and share Nancy’s story with the world.

Further information on the video clip and the

campaign will be available on May 8, 2018 at
