Ovarian Cancer

Teal There's A Cure Facebook Page

As many as 600 people are expected to fill Marcellus Park next week for the annual 5K walk/run to raise awareness for ovarian cancer.   “Teal There’s a Cure” is holding its 11th annual fundraiser on July 4th.  Ovarian cancer might be one of the less common types of cancer, but it does have a comparatively lower survival rate due to its later diagnosis.  Committee member Wendy Carl Isome is a survivor. She was diagnosed in 2010.

Many local women and several groups got together Wednesday to bring more attention to a type of cancer that can go undetected.  For two of them Ovarian Cancer Day is very personal.
