Ovarian cancer is a silent killer affecting one in 70 Canadian women.
It’s called “the disease that whispers” because the signs and symptoms can be vague and subtle. Most women ignore the warning signs because they are general and quite common.
Ovarian cancer is usually diagnosed too late. With knowledge and awareness ovarian cancer is detectable earlier.
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Curves on Comox Avenue is doing their part by hosting a Knowledge is Power presentation this Thursday at 7 p.m. A volunteer from Ovarian Cancer Canada will give the presentation.
The presentation will give insight to the disease and focus on the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer it also covers diagnosis, screening and risk factors.
This presentation is open to all.
