      Help raise awareness for ovarian cancer and its symptoms on Friday, September 7th, National Wear Teal Day.

      Ovarian cancer advocates nationwide will don teal clothes in support of ovarian cancer awareness.

      So, get out that teal cape and super hero belt, and let others know about the symptoms of ovarian cancer:

      • Bloating
      • Pelvic or abdominal pain
      • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
      • Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency) 

      The recommendation for a woman with any of these symptoms is that she see her doctor, preferably a gynecologist, if the symptoms are new and unusual and occur more than 12 times during the course of one month. Experts suggest a combination pelvic/rectal exam, CA 125 blood test, and a transvaginal ultrasound.

      Women's Ovarian Cancer Retreat

      Women with cancer are often forced to balance their own health care needs with roles as professionals, caregivers, mother, daughters and wives. Our five-day retreats enable them to set aside daily routines, focus on their own needs and develop a core community of support. Camps are free to attend, but a camper must provide her own transportation. Space is limited. Sign up to attend.


      Other retreats are planned for women's cancer, and young people diagnosed with cancer. Check out the calendar for more: http://www.campdream.org/programs/program-calendar/
