Ovarian cancer is one of the most challenging of the gynecological cancers. Approximately 1 in every 55 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer has just recently been labeled “The Not So Silent” disease. Most cases diagnosed do have a common thread of similar symptoms. Most women complaining of symptoms are referred to physicians for illnesses including bladder and intestinal problems. Learn about the Signs & Symptoms of ovarian cancer.
Nine Girls Ask? For A Cure For Ovarian Cancer (NGA) is composed of extremely talented, dedicated volunteers including many courageous survivors. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the unification of women to eradicate this “not so silent” disease. No one associated with NGA accepts monetary payment in any form. We feel it is so important to assure that all funds raised go directly to research and hopefully a test for early detection.
When our founder Joan Wyllie was diagnosed, she instantly became aware of the fact there was no other women to turn to for support or advice regarding “what to expect”! We were formed purely to help other women while experiencing their journey with ovarian cancer. In a very short time fund raising became very important to NGA as the need was evident.
We need your help to conquer this disease. “Nine Girls Ask?” For A Cure For Ovarian Cancer, has a very definite purpose and that is to raise awareness among women and doctors alike regarding the signs, symptoms and risks of ovarian cancer. In addition we will raise funds that will be delegated directly to ovarian cancer research regarding first diagnosis and recurrence.
Please help us fight, help us win this battle. Our desire is to foster a feeling of sisterhood among women. We must all unite to make a difference.
