Friday, February 03, 2012

I hope this interview and play raise awareness about ovarian cancer. We do not yet have adequate screening methods for this cancer, most insurance companies do not cover screening, and the cancer has extremely high mortality rates. We have a ways to go until we are adequately protecting women from this disease.
