Two weeks from today on May 8th World Ovarian Cancer Day will take place. World Ovarian Cancer Day is a great way to raise awareness of the disease worldwide. Around 140,000 women worldwide will loose their lives to ovarian cancer. The first World Ovarian Cancer Day was held in 2013.
The #gyncsm community supports the efforts of World Ovarian Cancer Day to raise awareness of the symptoms of the disease, the importance of family history and the need to fund research.
We urge our followers to visit the World Ovarian Cancer Day website and to sign the pledge to share information about ovarian cancer with five other women. If you are on Twitter you can spread the word using the hashtags #WOCD and #WorldOvarianCancerDay. You can also visit them on Facebook at facebook.com/WorldOvarianCancerDay.
Help us spread the word!
