OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS --- Please join my cause through Facebook. I'm not asking for donations, though you're always welcome to donate to any of the non-profit ovarian cancer research funds --- what I'm asking and urging you to do is read about ovarian cancer and share that info with other women, encouraging them to learn about this awful and unnecessary disease. Knowledge is power, ladies. <3 (see link below to join the cause and share with others)
Although the symptoms of ovarian cancer usually do not present themselves until the cancer has spread, there are signs and symptoms to watch out for. Ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect and if often diagnosed in later stages.
Due to vague symptoms, ovarian cancer often goes undiagnosed until the later stages when prognosis is poor. If caught early before the cancer has spread, the 5 year survival rate of ovarian cancer is over 90%. Do you know how to recognize the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer? Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms consistently for longer than 2 weeks. Today is #WorldOvarianCancerDay – help us save lives and share this with the women in your life! #WOCD
