Once again, May 8 is World Ovarian Cancer Day. Last year was the first year for the event, and I think it has built some awareness about Ovarian Cancer, but we can always use more awareness. At this point, that is the best defense against the disease - knowing the symptoms, knowing your body and taking the time to be aware of what is going on with your body.
As my mom knows, the symptoms are subtle and can be too easily confused with other body ailments. I have signed a pledge to share awareness on May 8 - it's easy to sign up and easy to spread the word, whether it's talking to people, using a blog or putting something on Facebook.
