Well, here we are...another September "Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month." The silence in the media is deafening. When it's October, "Breast Cancer Awareness Month," you can't swing a cat without bumping into an article, news segment, or other event promoting breast cancer awareness. I asked the American Cancer Society if they planned on doing anything for ovarian cancer awareness. That would be a "no." In fact, when it comes to funding, breast cancer gets the lion's share of the money they raise. In addition, they hold a separate fundraiser annually for breast cancer.
Props go out to the Windy City, which turned the town teal. If only we could get that kind of support everywhere!
