When it comes to ovarian cancer – we know that Knowledge is Power. Transferring knowledge and empowering individuals is the best tool we have. Women and men of all ages need to understand the risks and the realities of ovarian cancer which is the 5th most fatal cancer for women.
Ovarian cancer is the most serious of all gynecological cancers. Over 2600 Canadian women are diagnosed every year; and every year 1750 women succumb to this disease. Symptoms are varied, vague and easily missed. There is no screening test to detect it. But when found early – and treated – ovarian cancer survival rate is 90%.
- Supporting women living with the disease and their families
- Raising awareness in the general public and with health care professionals
- Funding research to develop early detection techniques, improved treatment and, ultimately, a cure
