The Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope brings people together to empower one another, support one another, and demand better for women living with ovarian cancer
– FACT: Survival rates for women with ovarian cancer haven’t improved in 50 years. Only 44% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer live 5 years beyond their diagnosis
 
– The community is determined to change the status quo by supporting those living
with the disease and fundraising for much-needed change


All women are at risk for developing ovarian cancer
– FACT: There is no reliable screening test for this disease, no vaccine to prevent it

About ovarian cancer

o She is over 50 years of age
o Her family has a history of certain types of cancer (ovarian, breast, endometrial,
colorectal cancers)
o She is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent
o She has a genetic mutation associated with ovarian cancer
If you are concerned about your risk for ovarian cancer, speak with your doctor
