September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, Wendy Cathey with the Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition joins Fox 24 to talk about the disease.

Ovarian Cancer is known as the silent killer. It’s the fifth leading cause of cancer related deaths in American women.

The Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition is made up of individuals who each have been personally impacted by Ovarian Cancer. The AROVCC  works to help save lives by disseminating information on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, ovarian cancer research, and resources available. By promoting professional and public awareness through educational materials, mass mail-outs, rallies, seminars and fundraising events, the organization hopes to inform every woman within the state of Arkansas.
