Today a group of advocates will meet with their elected officials in the House of Representatives and the Senate to discuss issues important to the ovarian cancer community. If you aren’t on the Hill with us in person, join us virtually and stand up for ovarian cancer survivors in your community. Let your voice be heard!
There is no known cause of ovarian cancer and no reliable early detection test.
For the 22,000 women who will be diagnosed with this disease in 2012–and their countless loved ones–please join us in asking our elected officials to:
- recognize September as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
- support appropriations of $20 million for the Ovarian Cancer Research Program in Fiscal Year 2013
- support the Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Act (HR 2746) or become a sponsor of the Senate bill when introduced.
It is as easy as sending an email!
