Darrel Lea Launches Ovarian Cancer Easter Egg

This Easter, iconic confectionery brand Darrell Lea has joined forces with the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to raise vital funds for world-leading ovarian cancer research down under – launching the Darrell Lea OCRF Milk Chocolate Egg.

Ovarian cancer stands as the most lethal reproductive cancer, bearing a 49% five-year average survival rate. About 70% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already at an advanced stage of the disease, due to vague symptoms and the lack of an early detection test. For these women, survival beyond five years drops to 29%.

To help Aussie researchers elevate survival rates by developing breakthroughs in early detection, treatment, prevention, and recurrence strategies, Darrell Lea will donate 20 cents from each OCRF Egg sold to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

The Darrell Lea OCRF Milk Chocolate Egg 100g is now available exclusively online and in-store at Coles Supermarkets nationwide for AU$8.50 – make sure to hop on down and get your hands on one before they’re gone.
