OVARYact, Orlando! : A Benefit Show
April 22, 2016 @ 9:00 pm
A Benefit To Raise Awareness & Fund Ovarian Cancer Research and Treatments.
Ovarian cancer is the #1 killer of all gynecological cancers, and 90% of women die within 10 years of diagnosis.
Our friends at Will’s Pub are hosting this event to spread awareness and raise donations for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. Come out for live music, a silent auction full of great prizes, art, and more!
When diagnosed at the localized stage, 5 year survival is 93%. However, only 15% of all cases are diagnosed at this stage. The most common diagnosis is stage 3 and at this stage the 5 year survival rate drops to 39% or less. Part of early detection means recognizing the symptoms and your risk factors, and bringing awareness to this disease is key! There are estimated to be over 15,000 deaths this year alone.
