Unlike most other cancers, if caught early, ovarian cancer is 90+% curable. The problem is to date there is no accurate early detection test, like the Pap smear for cervical cancer.
We are dependent upon you! We Need OUR CARING COMMUNITY!
Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest Gynecologic Cancer, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
Only about 76% of women with ovarian cancer survive 1 year after diagnosis, and 45% survive longer than 5 years after diagnosis.
If diagnosed and treated early (while the cancer has not spread outside the ovary), the 5-year survival rate is 93%. However, only 19% of all ovarian cancers are found at this early stage!!!!
Help us find a test!
