I don't know if this question can be answered but I' I'm just curious. When will Ovarian Cancer be recognize like Breast Cancer. Some times I get upset about not finding support groups and Walk and Runs or resources or T.V. advertising . I hope this will change soon.

Less fond of pink all the time. Services at my treatment center are available to breast cancer patients that I cannot access because my cancers are the wrong color. Nurse navigators for example.

Omg I was just saying the same thing to someone the other day. I wish that breast and ovarian awareness could team up so women could find resources to both. But I definitely feel where you are coming from. Hopefully this will change. I think with more awareness more women will catch their ovarian cancer at an earlier stage.
