Rebekah is playing her first year with the Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras after coming up through the Kilsyth Junior Cobra representative program; she also made it onto the Under 17 Australian squad last year. So far this year O’Donnell is averaging 1.8 points per game and 2.1 assists per game.

Rebekah decided to get involved in the event after her family was affected by the terrible disease. Ovarian Cancer kills one Australian woman every 11 hours and unfortunately there is no detection test, a Pap test does not detect ovarian cancer so learning the risks and symptoms is critical to ensure early diagnosis. 

Ovarian Cancer Australia is the country’s leading organisation for ovarian cancer awareness and support and is a national not-for-profit organisation founded in 2001 by people directly affected by ovarian cancer. The money that Bek is helping to raise will help Ovarian Cancer Australia to continue working towards achieving their mission to

 • Support women with ovarian cancer, their families, friends and carers with compassionate support programs and practical resources.
• Educate communities and individuals about the disease and increase their awareness of symptoms and the latest treatment, research and clinical trials.
• Advocate improving outcomes, treatment and quality of life for women with ovarian cancer.

Please help to support Bek by heading to and donating to this great cause. Rebekah and her fellow Swinburne Lady Cobras are in action this Saturday night against arch rivals the Knox Lady Rangers in the “Battle for the Ashes”; tip-off is at 6.15pm on Hugh McMenamin Court.
