    Name: Judy's Mission Launches Ovarian Cancer Awareness Campaign
    Date: September 20, 2016
    Event Description:
    Judy’s Mission Ovarian Cancer Foundation is kicking off Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this September with its #B4S4 (Before Stage 4) social media campaign to raise awareness about symptoms of ovarian cancer and the importance of early detection. When ovarian cancer is caught in Stage I, 93 percent of patients survive five years or longer. There is currently no screening available for ovarian cancer, which means many cases go undetected until stage III or stage IV. Educating women to recognize the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer is critical for early detection. Risk of ovarian cancer increases for women over 50, those who have a family history of ovarian cancer, women who have inherited mutations in the BRCA1 of BRCA2 genes, women of Northern European and/or Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and women who have never been pregnant.
