Happy New Year everyone!! We are excited about 2024!  Did you know ovarian
cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female
reproductive system. About 1 in every 71 women in the United States will
develop ovarian cancer.
makes our mission so vital to the community because someone’s mother,
sister, aunt, cousin, co-worker will be impacted directly or
indirectly by an ovarian cancer diagnosis during in their lifetime. We have to get the message out about signs and symptoms for early detection.

With that being said, we have a lot planned to bring ovarian cancer awareness to the community.  So, mark your calendars for our 2024 community engagement events and activities.
