About St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness
Ovarian cancer is the most deadly gynecologic cancer. Because there is no early screening test and symptoms are not well-known, 75% of women are diagnosed in late stages. Through Awareness Programs, passionate St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness (SLOCA) volunteers speak to women, corporate and community groups, and medical practitioners; staff health fairs; and publish stories in area newspapers – most prominently during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month (September) – to enable earlier diagnosis and improved survivorship. In addition to raising awareness, SLOCA supports survivors and funds ovarian cancer research which will lead to a diagnostic test. MORE INFO >>> http://www.sloca.org/
In 2013, the Blues supported the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Friends of Kids with Cancer through a special auction. In addition, the Blues selected the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Friends of Kids with Cancer to receive a $5,000 grant.
