Over 90,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with a GYN cancer this year and, unfortunately, one-third of them will die of this disease. The phrase “I didn’t know” is a killer when it refers to symptoms which go unnoticed and undiagnosed until it is too late.
Please join us on April 6th and become “in the know” about women’s cancers.
