Celebrating Mothers and Sisters Everywhere: World Ovarian Cancer Day – May 8, 2014

World Ovarian Cancer Day 2014

Just this morning, I received a Tweet by way of Ireland reminding me that May 8 is World Ovarian Cancer Day.

As we approach Mother’s Day in the US tomorrow, May 11, 2014, this is a perfect time to support our mothers and sisters around the globe.

World Ovarian Cancer Day


From the OvarianCancerDay.org website:

The first World Ovarian Cancer Day took place May 8th, 2013. It is dedicated to creating and raising awareness about ovarian cancer, the women’s cancer with the lowest survival rate for which there is little awareness and no cure. On this day, ovarian cancer awareness organizations from across the world worked together with a singular focus and message for ovarian cancer and its symptoms.

World Ovarian Cancer Day will take place on May 8th each year.

This website is a resource for learning about the Day, the disease, and how to get involved with your local ovarian cancer organization.
