New "Lifetime" Magazine--Encourage Sisters to Write Them

While at the clinic today I picked up a magazine I hadn't seen before--Lifetime. It is an offshoot of the Lifetime TV Channel (which I never watch). It was a very pink magazine. Well, I've decided to launch a write-in campaign asking board mates to write them asking them to include stories and awareness on not just OVCA but on ALL gynecological cancers. I plan to enclose the OCNA materials on OVCA and statistics from the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation on all gyn. cancers. I urge you to do the same. Their w-mail is: [email protected] and address is: Editorial Offices, 11th Floor, 1790 Broadway, New York NY 10019.

Facts on GYN CANCERS are as follows. Deaths are from 2002; New cases are 2003 estimates.


Ovarian 25,000 14,000
Cervical 12,200 4,100
Uterine 40,100 6,800
Vaginal 2,000 not given
Vulvar 4,000 not given

Rounded numbers: 80,000 diagnosed this year; 26,000 deaths.

We cannot wait for whatever month and limit things to a month now. If anyone finds another magazine that's newer that you think we could reach--please post! I'm going to be writing until I no longer can write.

You go Ellen!!!
I am off on Wednesday and promise to write them a letter at that time. Perhaps I will tell them what my son is doing and see if this grabs there interest. I am learning that the media likes a different twist on a disease.

I will write them tomorrow and also keep writing them. I agree, there needs to be more awareness of ALL gyn. cancers!! Thank you for the statistics also. I do watch Lifetime - Karenanne, maybe they will make a movie about you, your family & your son!!!

Margaret321, This is so pro-active. And I'll be writing them, too, re: television productions on gyn. cancers. We get Lifetime here, too.
