September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through  Silver

“Everyone knows someone who…” Unfortunately, there are a number of ways to finish that sentence in today’s society. While that may be true, we are focused on only one way of finishing it and that is “...who has or has had cancer or a deadly disease.” The sad fact is, this rings very true for most Americans and really, everyone in the world. Cancer does not and will not discriminate.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month within the United States and, according to the CDC, causes more deaths in women in one year than any other cancer in the reproductive system. The National Cancer Institute reports that 22,530 new cases of the hard to diagnose cancer has been estimated for 2019. They also report that the estimated deaths in 2019 will be 13,980. Ovarian Cancer is rare and it has been found that women who have a family history of the disease are at higher risk.

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition reports that one in every 78 women will be diagnosed with the deadly disease as early detection tests do not exist and your typical pap smear procedure does not detect cancer. The NOCC focuses its campaign for spreading awareness about this terrible disease by simply spreading the word on earlier symptoms, genetic predisposition, and the lack of early detection testing in the medical field.
