St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness
Impacts survivorship by promoting awareness, funding research and supporting survivors.
The mission of St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness (SLOCA) is to increase ovarian cancer survivorship by promoting awareness of early warning signs and standards of care, funding ovarian cancer research, and supporting survivors. Statistics for women with ovarian cancer are dismal because there is no early screening test and symptoms are not well-known. SLOCA’s efforts to educate women, men and medical professionals will enable earlier diagnoses and improved rates of ovarian cancer survivorship.
