Please share this with your colleagues, friends, and family!!
Caring Together is an ovarian cancer support, education, and awareness group located in the New York Capital Region. Not only do they provide support and advocacy to survivors, Caring Together raises money to support research efforts aimed at finding an early detection test and a cure.
For the last 15 years, Caring Together has coordinated an annual Teal Ribbon Run/Walk right in Washington Park in Albany, New York. In 2016, they raised more than $120,000 to support ovarian cancer research and awareness activities! You can learn more about the Caring Together organization by visiting their website: http://www.caringtogetherny.org/
The organization will kick off its 16th Annual Teal Ribbon Run/Walk on September 10, 2017. You can sign up for this 5K race from here.
There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer.
In many ways ovarian cancer is a “silent” cancer because the signs and symptoms can be vague and mimic other more common illnesses. Since there is no early detection test available, knowledge of the signs and symptoms that require evaluation by an experienced and appropriate healthcare provider is important for all women!
You can learn more about the Advantedge Education ovarian cancer awareness course and enroll directly from here.
Thank you for your support of women’s health!
