OVARIAN CANCER
FACTS ABOUT OVARIAN CANCER PHILOPTOCHOS WOMEN NEED TO KNOW
Is it an ovarian cyst or ovarian cancer?
Is it an abdominal condition or ovarian cancer?
Is it constipation or ovarian cancer?

OVARIAN CANCER is a deadly disease that kills more women than all other reproductive cancers combined. Because it is hard to detect - there is no one reliable test to identify it - and as some of its symptoms are similar to other conditions, it is important to recognize its signs so that we can act quickly and appropriately. As a women's organization, it is equally important for us to "get the word out" - to our mothers, aunts and grandmothers, to our daughters, neighbors and friends so that they know what to look for. To help you do so, we have prepared an "Ovarian Cancer Fact Sheet" - both in Greek and in English. 

During National Philoptochos' January Cancer Commitment month, we urge you to take one or more of the actions to broadly distribute these Fact Sheets throughout your Chapter, parish, and community-at-large: 

    1. Ask your priest to include both in your Sunday Bulletin.
    2. Distribute copies to the organizations in your Church, including Parish Council, GOYA, Greek and Sunday Schools, Parent Organizations, senior citizen groups, and more.
    3. Post both Fact Sheets in the women's rooms of your Church.
    4. Place both Fact Sheets in a public area of your Church.
    5. Ask a local newspaper to publish the Fact Sheets and ask the local "health editor" to write an article on ovarian cancer.
    6. Invite a gynecological oncologist from a local hospital or cancer society to one of your meetings
