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.
