Share a fact from the World Ovarian Cancer Day website!
Today I want to share this fact:
Ovarian cancer is diagnosed annually in nearly a quarter of a million women globally, and is responsible for 140,000 deaths each year. Statistics show that just 45% of women with ovarian cancer are likely to survive for five years compared to up to 89% of women with breast cancer.
Keep spreading awareness.
