Ovarian cancer is the most serious of all gynecological cancers. Over 2600 Canadian women are diagnosed every year; and every year 1750 women succumb to this disease. Symptoms are varied, vague and easily missed. Until there is a reliable early detection screening test awareness of the signs & symptoms is our most powerful tool.
Ovarian Cancer Canada sets out to create awareness about ovarian cancer across Canada – reaching communities, corporations and individuals across the country with our Knowledge Programs, Awareness Events and Information Materials. One of our top priorities is to communicate, foster and increase ovarian cancer awareness among women, healthcare professionals and the general public across Canada.
