Every year, approximately 15,000 women in the US will die from ovarian cancer.  That's like having a small town vanish off the map.  Here are a couple examples of US town that would cease to exist:

1. Gettysburg, PA

2. St. Augustine, FL

3. Los Alamos, NM

4. Sausalito, CA

5. Jackson, WY

And that's just 5 towns.  Think about it...poof!  A whole town...gone.

We must come up with a better way of treating ovarian cancer.  It's inexcusable that the mortality rate for ovarian cancer is essentially unchanged from when I was first diagnosed in 2011.
