Ovarian cancer is the most fatal women’s cancer.  There is no screening test for ovarian cancer and because this disease is often caught in its late stages, 55% of women diagnosed die within fi­ve years.  Please help find a reliable early detection test for ovarian cancer by supporting Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only registered Canadian charity solely dedicated to overcoming ovarian cancer.
