Organiser's Description

Kaylee Strong continues to Raise Awareness for Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. A woman's risk of getting ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 78.  It is one of the most challenging diseases known to medicine and often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen.  Early detection is difficult because symptoms can be mild and vague and could apply to a variety of conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome or ovarian cysts.  4 in 5 Women will be misdiagnosed & 1 in 4 Women will wait over 6 months to get a correct diagnosis.  Advanced-stage ovarian cancer may cause few and nonspecific symptoms that are often mistaken for more common benign conditions.   
The most typical ovarian cancer symptoms include:• Increase in tummy size • Bloating •Abdominal/back/pelvic pain •Needing to urinate more often or urgently •Bowel changes•Fatigue
Kaylee Strong Fun Run or Walk proceeds will Benefit Ovarcome, an Ovarian Cancer Foundation.  Their Mission is "to raise global awareness, to fund research in search of a cure, and to provide financial support to underserved women in the U.S. as well as developing nations in their valiant fight against ovarian cancer"  Our Goal is to bring awareness, educate others about the symptoms and help Ovarcome with their mission.
