OvarianMonthOvarian Cancer Awareness Month
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month! Be sure to check out our special programming for this important time.

Ovarian cancer is not well recognized or understood by the general public, so this month, SHARE will be emphasizing the importance of knowing its signs and communicating with your doctor. Common symptoms of ovarian cancer include:
  • bloating
  • frequent urination
  • fatigue
  • feeling full after eating
  • See More
If you have experienced any of these symptoms for more than two weeks, make an appointment with your gynecologist right away.

SHARE is a partner of the  Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance , which created this helpful  infographic  with critical information on ovarian cancer. Take a look and share with the women in your life so that they are aware, too! You can also call SHARE's Ovarian Cancer Helpline ( 866-537-4273) and speak to a trained peer who understands what you're going through.
