Every year, 220 women in Colorado will lose their battle against this deadly disease. These deaths can be prevented by earlier diagnosis and greater awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms. There is no screeening test for ovarian cancer, so being able to recognize these symptoms, leading to early detection, is critical to save lives. They are:
2) Pelvic or abdominal pain
3) Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
4) Urinary urgency or frequency
The mission of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) is to promote awareness about ovarian cancer through advocacy, education and support.
Please give generously to support the efforts of Jodi and all we are trying to do to help save the lives of other women.
