RIGHT TO KNOW

In the year 2013, an estimated 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer starts as a small tumor in the ovaries, but can easily spread to the abdomen and pelvis area. Once the cancer spreads to the abdomen and pelvis it is very difficult to treat and is often fatal.
