Educate, Raise Awareness, Increase Symptom Knowledge, End the Mortality Rate
Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of the gynecological cancers, causing more deaths in the U.S. each year than all other gynecological cancers combined. The five-year survival rate is over 90% and long-term prognosis is good for those women diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Stage 1.
But only 30% of women diagnosed are still in Stage 1. The Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization, Inc., a nonprofit, was created on the Central California Coast to raise research funds and spread the word about the importance of early detection for ovarian cancers.
Now you can help increase the chances that women will benefit from early detection and that research break-throughs for ovarian cancer will emerge.
We are dedicated to providing education and support for early detection and awareness of Ovarian cancer.
