DAY THREE Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: #TakeActionNotChances

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition has started a campaign in honor of September's Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month called #TakeActionNotChances. Overall the campaign is to encourage and promote earlier awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and get people to start an earlier conversation with doctors.

The vision of the NOCC’s new EARLIER Awareness Initiative has been created in partnership with a member of the NOCC community - a woman named Cathy - who has a story all to familiar about how ovarian cancer is finally diagnosed...TOO LATE! Read Cathy's story >> 

The sad part of the story is that Cathy did pass away after her stage 3 diagnosis - in a matter of months after diagnosis. If you go to the site link above please take the time to read Cathy's daughter's excerpt about the importance of being your own health advocate. Because the first time you have a symptom of ovarian cancer - it usually means it is too late.

We can make it a good story by advocating that EARLIER IS BETTER.
