BENEFITING: HERA FOUNDATION

EVENT: Climb4Life Salt Lake City 2016

EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2016

THE STORY:

Once again this year Noah and I will honor my mother and join the HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation's fight to eliminate ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer is often called the “silent killer” because the early symptoms are subtle and difficult to diagnose. If caught early enough, many women survive, but without an early detection test and awareness of the symptoms, another 15,000 women will die from this disease this year. One in 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime. This means the odds are that someone in your life will be affected by this disease. You can help change this story from tragedy to hope by supporting our participation in Climb4Life Salt Lake City. This year it is an indoor climbing event  being hosted at Momentum Indoor Climbing. 

The funds we raise will help HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation make grants to Johns Hopkins University researchers and the dream team at Stand Up To Cancer that HERA is collaboratively funding to find a cure and more effective diagnosis of ovarian cancer. It will also help us raise awareness of the sometimes elusive signs and symptoms of this insidious disease.

 

Please consider making a pledge in honor of all the women and girls in your life. 

Thank you,

Hilary and Noah

There is no screening method for early detection for ovarian cancer. Pap smears test only for cervical cancer.  The symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague and often overlooked, leading to later detection:

Abdominal swelling or bloating, increased girth

Persistent pressure or pain in the abdomen or pelvis

Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly

Urinary concerns, such as urgency or frequency

Change in bowel habits with new onset constipation and/or diarrhea

Unexplained vaginal bleeding

Any woman may have these symptoms for reasons not related to ovarian cancer.  However, if these symptoms are new and unusual and persist daily for more than two weeks, a woman should see her doctor, preferably a gynecologist, and should ask about ovarian cancer.  A transvaginal ultrasound and CA125 blood test may be necessary.  If ovarian cancer is suspected, see a gynecologic oncologist immediately.  (Source:   Ovarian Cancer Research Fund)
