World Ovarian Cancer Day

8 May

Ovarian Cancer

Every year over 300 000 women will hear “you have ovarian cancer”.

2-5% will be told they have low-grade serous ovarian cancer. It disproportionately affects the young and middle aged.

With current medical treatments less than half of all women live longer than 9 years.

As many as 100 000 women around the world are living with low-grade serous ovarian cancer today.

May 8 World Ovarian Cancer Day is an initiative of the World Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

With low-grade serous ovarian cancer are mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and nieces.
