I started a team for the 2014 National Race to End Women’s Cancer. I’d love for YOU to join my team! This race supports the eradication of ALL female cancers. Every seven minutes, a woman is diagnosed with a reproductive cancer — cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar — touching more than 91,000 American women each year. Many are not diagnosed until the late stages of these diseases, and nearly a third will die.
Through this race, the Foundation for Women’s Cancer shines a bright spotlight on these less talked about, “below the belt” cancers. Reproductive cancers affect women of all ages — from their teens and 20’s through their 80’s. The Foundation urges all women to LEARN, LISTEN and ACT to maintain their gynecologic health:
LEARN the symptoms and risk factors for each gynecologic cancer;
LISTEN to their bodies;
ACT to take preventive steps, and seek care first from a gynecologic oncologist when a gynecologic cancer is suspected or diagnosed.
It happens in November in Washington, DC and there are a few ways that you can join my team! You can do the 5k run OR the 1 mile walk. YOU CAN JOIN MY TEAM, EVEN IF YOU CAN’T ATTEND THE RACE! Here’s what you do!
