Did You Know?
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers. It is the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths for Canadian women. Each year, there are 2500 new cases diagnosed and 1500 related deaths. The 5 year survival rate is only 30%. Nearly all women die within 10 years of diagnosis. Since it is difficult to detect in its early stages, the survival rate has not changed appreciably in over 40 years. However, with early detection and effective treatments, it is possible to increase the survival rate to 90%. The difference is huge; yet attainable with sufficient resources for research.
Princess Margaret is one of the 5 leading cancer hospitals in North America and is at the forefront of research into early detection and treatment for ovarian cancer. With your support we can ensure that research into the causes, treatment and prevention of ovarian cancer will continue, make a difference and ultimately, save lives. (aWEARness 2009)
