Digga Australia socking it to ovarian cancer

Digga Australia's Ovarian Cancer Socks gift box.

Leading machinery attachment manufacturer Digga Australia is raising money for potentially life-saving ovarian cancer research in honour of a former CEO.

In 2018, Digga Australia lost its CEO, Suzie Wright to Ovarian Cancer at the age of 49. Since then, Digga has donated and helped raise close to $400,000 for Ovarian Cancer Research. This Christmas, Digga is selling a beautiful gift set of socks with 100 per cent of net proceeds going to ovarian cancer research.

Don’t think research makes a difference? check out the five-year survival rates of breast and prostate cancers which have benefited from high awareness and funding, against the five-year survival rate of ovarian cancer.

The truth is that there is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, so diagnosis often comes too late for effective treatment. It’s time that ovarian cancer, the deadliest gynaecologic cancer received increased awareness and research funding. To learn more about ovarian cancer and this fundraiser, click here.

The socks were designed by Zoe, deputy CEO of Digga and Suzie’s daughter, and inspired by Zoe’s memory of her mum.

The socks are a high-quality cotton/bamboo mix, and come presented in a beautiful gift box.
