Welcome to the OVA the Rainbow
Gynaecological Cancer Support Group Website

Ova the Rainbow is a gynaecological cancer support group and a registered charity established at the end of 2001 by Lynne Wright and Jane McNeil, specialist oncology nurses at James Cook University Hospital.

The support group was established to help patients and there carers through a difficult time. Talking to people in a similar situation to yourself can be a big help. The group meets on the first Friday in the month in The Trinity Centre, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough between 11am-1pm.


The Meetings provide an opportunity to meet others and exchange information and support. Visiting speakers have given a number of interesting talks on topics such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki and other complimentary therapies, we also have many other light hearted speakers.

The money we raise goes to help buy equipment to improve the care of the patients and also we use it to rganise outings, theatre visits etc.

We are always open to new ideas and welcome any new members, family and friends included.
