 These women are all ovarian cancer survivors who have graciously agreed to let us share their images to  help raise awareness for this insidious disease. Ovarian cancer can affect any woman, regardless of age, race, size or shape. There is currently no screening tests for ovarian cancer. Testing typically happens after you have symptoms, and unfortunately,  it often doesn't cause any symptoms until later stages. That is why it is so important to know your body and reach out to your healthcare provider when you notice something unusual. Ovarian cancer is much easier to treat in its early stages.
