September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and the foundation needs your support to help fund a potentially groundbreaking research project designed to provide women with improved treatment options and better outcomes. Ovarian cancer occurs in approximately one out of 72 women.
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of gynecologic cancer deaths in America. If diagnosed and treated early, the five-year relative survival rate is above 90 percent. Unfortunately, as a result of the disease’s non-specific symptoms and the lack of early detection tests, only about 15 percent of cases are detected in this early stage. The average five-year relative survival rate is only about 44 percent.
