More than 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 15,000 women die annually from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in their later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and in its honor, St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness (SLOCA), is working tirelessly in an effort to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and provide information on symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and support through national programs.
