Ovarian Cancer Day & The all new Full Monty – Who bares all wins!
Posted: 8th May 2019
WORLD OVARIAN CANCER DAY IS AN INITIATIVE OF THE WORLD OVARIAN CANCER COALITION
Each year on May 8th, women living with ovarian cancer, their families and supporters, along with patient advocacy organizations from around the world, come together to raise awareness about ovarian cancer. World Ovarian Cancer Day (WOCD) is the one day of the year we all raise our voices in solidarity across the world in the fight against this disease.
Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate of all female cancers. Most women are diagnosed once the cancer has already spread, making it more difficult to treat. There are often delays in diagnosing ovarian cancer. That is because there is no early detection test, and symptoms are often confused with symptoms of other less severe illnesses, particularly gastrointestinal complaints.
Five-year ovarian cancer survival rates vary around the world, ranging from 30% to 45%. By comparison, five-year survival rates for women with breast cancer range from 80% to 90%.
Ovarian cancer is overlooked and underfunded – yet every woman in the world is at risk of developing this disease.
