February: A Month that Specifically Raises Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Many people recognize the month of February for the onset of spring and everything beautiful. However, not many know but this month is also observed as the Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, which is all about raising awareness and encouraging women to understand the symptoms of this dreaded condition.

Apart from helping women understand this type of cancer, it also plays a part in raising some funds that are used in cancer research and provide help to support programs.

Talking about the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, the Chairwoman of Ovarian Cancer Australia, Paula Benson, informed that the month played an imperative role in educating woman about this dreaded condition and how they can detect the symptoms related to this condition. It needs to be kept in mind that the disease results in the fatality of 800 women on an annual basis. Apart from that, another 1200 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year.

Among the 1200 women who are detected with ovarian cancer is Jay Greenaway of Katoomba. She was diagnosed with the condition around 8 years ago and still happens to live a somewhat normal life. The brave woman informs that ovarian cancer is not a death sentence and there is life after the condition is detected. The best way to handle it is by managing the disease and not giving up.

As an advice to women, she informs that the best thing to do is to ask and not be told things you already know about ovarian cancer. At the end of it, you have to take responsibility for your health and there is no other way to move ahead in life after cancer.
