For the 9th consecutive year, Georg Jensen is partnering with the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) with the mission to move a step closer to a world where every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer can still live a long and healthy life.
This year’s campaign is grounded by the story of current ovarian cancer patient, Georgie Beck, and the people that form the village of support behind her. From family and friends, who support her through every test, appointment and treatment; to the surgeons, oncologists and GPs, who fight every day to treat the disease. The village includes those who are dedicated to changing the reality of ovarian cancer; to the advocates, who lend their voice to raise awareness for the cause; and critically, the researchers who are working tirelessly to find new treatments and early detection technology that will help to improve the outcomes for ovarian cancer patients, and all people facing the threat of ovarian cancer.
Drawing inspiration from the very essence of Georg Jensen's core design values, the OCRF Pendant serves as both a powerful and beautiful symbol of a collective mission of prevention and cure. For every purchase of the Sterling Silver OCRF Pendant, Georg Jensen donates $50, on your behalf, directly to the OCRF. For every purchase of the 18kt Yellow Gold Pendant, Georg Jensen donates $200, on your behalf, directly to the OCRF, contributing to vital research to improve treatment methods and early detection of ovarian cancer.
MEET THE AMBASSADORS
This year, the Georg Jensen OCRF campaign brought together advocates, researchers and women living with ovarian cancer to join the fight against ovarian cancer.
OVARIAN CANCER PATIENT
“My Village has been there every step of the way. I’ve felt the love and support from everybody”
“It affects everyone in some way, because it affects all women”
ADVOCATE AND ENTREPRENEUR
“It feels really powerful to wear this necklace, its a talking point, its a constant reminder. It is a beautiful symbol of something we need to be focused on”
ADVOCATE AND PUBLISHER
“For so many women, they experience symptoms we don’t think twice about, or there are next to no symptoms. When that happens for those women and they are diagnosed, it is crucial that they have this support of a village around them”
DR YEH CHEN LEE
“Cancer research is the heart and soul of improving this disease. Without it, we will not be able to find a better way to treat this cancer”
