Ovarian Cancer Research Fund – Support This Weekend

In Family, For the Stilletos, Jewelry on July 27, 2012 at 7:00 AM

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women.  American Cancer Society estimates 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the United States in 2012 and about 15,500 women will die from the disease.

When ovarian cancer is detected and treated early, there is a 92%+ five year survival rate.  Unfortunately, many patients aren’t diagnosed until they’ve reached an advanced stage dropping their five year survival rate to less than 50%.

The good news is, with ongoing research, 50% of women are surviving longer than five years after diagnosis which is a vast improvement from 30 years ago when the survival rate was 10% to 20%.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund supports research:
• to find better tests that can diagnose ovarian cancer earlier and more precisely,
• to understand what causes ovarian cancer, and
• to develop improved treatments.
