February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and Cola Solar is proud to be supporting the campaign. Each year, 1200 Australian women are diagnosed with the disease and highlighting the symptoms and raising funds for further research will help increase the survival rate of ovarian cancer.

People can get involved by coming in to Cola Solar (or other participating Bendigo businesses) and purchasing a teal ribbon for $2. $1 will also be donated from every solar panel sold during February.

  • persistant abdominal or pelvic pain
  • frequent need to urinate
  • bloating or an increased abdomen size
  • feeling full fast or having trouble eating
