Among the many things September is--the start of school, fall--it is also a month to remember, honor, support, and educate about ovarian cancer. My
Mom found hers early, and so we had 7 more years with her. My home state of Wyoming, according to ovariancancerawareness.org, ranks last in awareness and education on ovarian cancer. That is scary to me, as among the major symptoms--bloating, fatigue, frequent urination, changes in menstruation, feeling full quickly--are many things women take as part of their lot in life. So, my few readers, educate yourselves, and wear teal on Friday, September 7.
