This morning on one local Radio Station, they brought up the topic of Cancer. An oncologist from Cork spoke and mentioned awareness and education of people of signs and symptoms of Cancers. He was very positive stating that suspect Cancer are seen within a week having been fast tracked by their doctor. So I rang in and they rang me back an hour or so later. So I got my spoke in about OC mentioning Ovacare who are so good to us all and give us the facility to get together every so often. I brought up awareness and said Dr Power was correct, we need more awareness especially of Ovarian Cancer. I also stated that OC was the poor relation when it came to media attention and also got very little recognition from the Irish Cancer Society. I did get in the fact that we as patients distribute awareness leaflets in our local surgeries etc. around the time of World Ovarian Cancer Day. I also mentioned something we used debate with Daisies, that by the time we got information about O.C we were already diagnosed and people need to be made aware of symptoms before then. I managed to get in the Beat symptoms. So I am happy in the knowledge that if we keep chipping away, we will get results and more awareness.
