Lena Wäppling's Foundation is the only charity in Europe run by an ovarian cancer survivor raising funds and granting them directly to peer-reviewed ovarian cancer research projects globally.

Advancing Research in Ovarian Cancer

A Unique Foundation

We were founded in 2019, and so far we have granted SEK 3.6 million to research.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecological cancer. More research is needed to increase the survival rate and save lives.
