Hi Friends,Two years ago, ovarian cancer was not even on my radar.
I live in the Bay Area where we have one of the highest rates of breast cancer in the nation and I've lost girlfriends my age to the disease. Active, radiant, lively young women at whom I've smiled countless times across a sea of purple mats in downward dog. Women who might be alive today if breast cancer had just been on their radar.Ovarian cancer is the new breast cancer and I certainly don't mean that in a fashion sense. Like breast cancer was in the early 80's, ovarian cancer today is somewhat of a mystery to us all. We've heard of it, we know we don't want it, we know it's killing women every day...and yet most of us can't name a single symptom to be aware of. In other words, it flies under our radar.Action starts with awareness. How much DO you really know about ovarian cancer?

IF DETECTED EARLY, 90% WILL SURVIVE.
Spreading the word: women gather together at a Hera Climb for Life Event
Unlike the Pap smear for cervical cancer or the mammogram for breast cancer, there is no reliable early detection method for ovarian cancer. Consequently over 75 percent of women with ovarian cancer have already had it spread by the time it is diagnosed. But that can change...
BE THE CHANGE.
This month, I raise a glass of something delicious to women and all of the men who love us. To our awareness and enduring good health...clink, clink!Thank you for your business and friendship.
