The Sue DiNapoli Ovarian Cancer Society’s (SDOCS) Awareness Team works year round to educate the community about the symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. The team has distributed 9150 ovarian cancer symptoms cards and has had 776 one on one conversations with women about the disease during the summer of 2016! Our awareness team works year round to educate the community about the symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. We are putting a loud voice to a silent killer. Ovarian cancer is often underfunded and ignored. As the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women, we believe ovarian cancer deserves more attention and more funds. SDOCS hopes to raise the level of awareness and funding in our community. SDOCS takes an active role in the community educating women as to the warning signs of ovarian cancer.
We raise the level of knowledge and awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors by participating in community events. We continually put ourselves out there through many forms of communication including social media, email, TV and radio.
