Yesterday, I reported on our Facebook page...that Mortality rates for ovarian cancer have not improved in forty years since the "War on Cancer" was declared. That information came from the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. As I reflected on the statistic, I got a little angry! Yes, I admit it...I got stinkin' mad!! With all the technological advancement today and areas of advancement in the medical arena.
Did you know?? Teal is the color for the Ovarian Cancer Ribbon. Statistics say that in the US in 2012...approx 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 15,500 women will die from ovarian cancer over the same time period. These numbers are not acceptable and Strong As Steele will continue to raise funds to contribute to ovarian cancer research. We will NOT back down!!
Check back this week for more frequently asked questions about ovarian cancer.
Tickets will be sold at the gate and the following locations: Paula Maita and Company 9020, Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove; Its A Grind Galt, 10420 Twin Cities Road, Galt; Galt Smog, 515 N.
