Harts of Teal is an initiative to follow our lord and savior into the local community to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, educate women on the signs and symptoms , and fund early detection research.

Ovarian Cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. A woman's risk of getting ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 78. The five-year relative survival rate for all types and stages of ovarian cancer is 47 percent.

Ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen. At this late stage, ovarian cancer is more difficult to treat. Early-stage ovarian cancer, in which the disease is confined to the ovary, is more likely to be treated successfully. Unfortunately most cases of Ovarian Cancer are found late stage due to the signs and symptoms being so vague and commonly mistaken for other things.

Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

  • Abdominal bloating or swelling

  • Quickly feeling full when eating

  • Weight loss Discomfort in the pelvis area

  • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation

  • A frequent need to urinate
