It’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Here are facts about this cancer and what you can do to not only protect yourself but be a helpful hand in the research and cure of the disease.*
• 200,000 women in the US are currently living with Ovarian Cancer
• It is one of the deadliest cancers for women
• There is no early detection test, so most cases are diagnosed when the disease is advanced
What you can do:
Please visit Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, the largest Ovarian cancer research advocacy and patient support organization in the world. Since 1998 they have funded $75 million in private research at leading medical institutions and fought on Capitol Hill to help secure $2.2 billion in federal funding for ovarian cancer research and awareness. Visit them to learn your risk, symptoms and how you get involved. Perhaps this information could save your life or the life of a loved one.
