Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month 2019
During Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Sigma Alpha Omega Christian Sorority is dedicated to raising awareness for the often undetected disease. We are sharing this petition to encourage our sisters and their social media followers and friends to learn more about Ovarian Cancer, its symptoms, and the treatment for this cancer.
Ovarian Cancer Awareness has been Sigma Alpha Omega's national philanthropy since June 2, 2007 and this OCA month our sisters are excited to raise and recognize current fighters, survivors, and those that have lost their battle to ovarian cancer. 1 in 77 women will be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer during their lifetime. 70% of diagnoses don't occur until Stage 3 or 4, and surgery is required to accurately stage the cancer. Remember the acronym "BEAT" when thinking through symptoms:
(B)loating that is persistent
(E)ating less and feeling fuller
(T)rouble with your bladder
Know the symptoms and facts and share them with your friends and family this Ovarian Cancer Awareness month!
