EmpowHER Encourages Women to Learn More About Ovarian Cancer

Top Women's Health Media Company Launches a Resource Dedicated to Education and Support Around Ovarian Cancer

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Knowledge is power, and knowing the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer can often mean the difference between life and death. To aid in the fight to get or stay healthy, EmpowHER, an award-winning health media company for women, has launched a free Ovarian Cancer Resource Center for women of all ages to gain an understanding and knowledge of symptoms, preventative care and treatments.

According to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer affects over 21,000 women in the United States annually. Ranked fifth in cancer deaths among women, it will account for approximately 15,000 deaths in 2011 alone. Although ovarian cancer is more prominently found in women ages 60 and older, it is truly vital for women of ALL ages to be aware of their health and the risk factors, signs and treatments around this condition.

EmpowHER's Ovarian Cancer resource page offers women a safe, supportive, informative place to find all the information they need to prevent and fight this disease at any age. Additionally, women can connect and share their experiences with other women affected by the disease, as well as learn how to improve their lives through small, healthy changes.

Content on EmpowHER's resource page includes:

"Through the Ovarian Cancer resource page, EmpowHER continues its mission of improving health and changing and saving lives through education and support," says Michelle King Robson, EmpowHER's Founder, Chairperson and CEO. "We created a comprehensive guide that combines potentially life-saving information, including in-depth descriptions of ovarian cancer symptoms and prevention tips, with personal accounts from women who have survived the disease, so that those currently battling ovarian cancer, or those who simply want to learn more about it can be active participants in their own health."
