It's Not too Early to Think September

September is Gynelogic Cancer Awareness Month. (Ovarian Awareness Month Too.) It's not too early about thinking what we can doto get the word out about gyn caners. 83,000 women are diagnosed every year and 25,000 die (14,000 from ovarian). I've already contacted two area women's magaines and the WI Women's Health Foundatoin, the gynecologic/oncology department at the Univ. of WI Comprehensive Cancer Center, another hospital and the area's major HMO. They need to plan ahead for magazine items and for what they may want to do (or not as in the case of the other hospital woh said they'd "think about it" for the future). I have thelist of all the local TV stations and will ask them in July to do something on their websites and newspapers all around the state in larger areas will get letters from me. I spent a lot of time on national tihngs last year and never heard back (magazines, Oprah) so I decided to hit local possibilities. I'm giving websites too and if there are any especially for vaginal, uterine and vulvar, I'd appreciate those. covers all kinds of gyn. cancer. is for the National Cervical Cancer Coalition. and are for ovarian. We're from all over so we can cover quite an area.

You are right -- they need plenty of lead time.

You are an inspiration. I will start getting involved in raising awareness when I can, and I appreciate the info and links.
