Fighting Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is called the silent killer. That's because 75 percent of cases diagnosed each year are in the advanced stages when the cancer has already spread to other parts of the body.
Doctors say early stage symptoms of ovarian cancer are so difficult to detect that many women never know they have the disease until it's too late.
But as Melissa Long reports in the Health Minute video to your right, in this Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, states across the country are promoting public awareness and raising research money to fight this deadly disease.
