Pictured above: Alabama joins the BEAT ovarian cancer campaign by educating their community using a billboard on a major highway in Birmingham.
The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA), the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC), the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation (GCF) and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) have teamed up to educate women about listening to their bodies and recognizing the symptoms of ovarian cancer with a new campaign called BEAT ovarian cancer.
Started in the United Kingdom as an international initiative, BEAT is based on an easy-to-remember checklist for women and their doctors:
B – is for Bloating that is persistent
E – is for Eating less and feeling fuller
A – is for Abdominal pain
T – is for Trouble with your bladder
