)-- Honoring and Remembering Those That Make a Difference in the Fight Against Ovarian Cancer
Join Be The Difference Foundation in celebrating ovarian cancer awareness month while honoring and remembering supporters and volunteers who are helping make a difference in the battle against ovarian cancer at the Honoring and Remembering Event presented by Be the Difference Foundation on Thursday, September 20, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Laura Rathe Fine Art 1130 Dragon Street, Dallas, TX.
Imagine a world without mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends. That is the reality for many people touched by ovarian cancer. One woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer every 24 minutes. One woman dies from ovarian cancer every 37 minutes. 70% of women diagnosed will die from the disease. Sadly, there is no routine, reliable early detection test available for ovarian cancer today.
In most cases, ovarian cancer isn’t diagnosed until it has progressed to an advanced stage. Typically, this is because ovarian cancer symptoms either aren’t apparent in the early stages of the disease or they mimic common stomach and digestive issues such as general abdominal discomfort, bloating and/or a feeling of fullness, even after a light meal, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss or gain, loss of appetite and unusual fatigue, that are often mistaken for minor ailments.
The Honoring and Remembering Event is a community celebration of survivors and their families, supporters and volunteers. The event is complimentary and Laura Rathe Fine Art will donate partial proceeds of the art sold at the event to Be The Difference Foundation. The community is welcome to attend. RSVP’s should be made by September 13, 2018 at http://www.bethedifferencefoundation.org/thankyou.
“Be the Difference Foundation has been instrumental in providing the funds desperately needed for research and supporting women in the fight,” said Jill Bach, President and Co-founder of Be the Difference Foundation and eleven year survivor of ovarian cancer.
Funds raised through Be The Difference Foundation benefit organizations working to end ovarian cancer and support women currently battling the disease. Beneficiary organizations include: The Clearity Foundation, Mary Crowley Cancer Research, MD Anderson Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center, NYU Langone Medical Center-Perlmutter Cancer Center and The Lazarex Cancer Foundation.

Be the Difference Foundation was formed in 2012 by four ovarian cancer survivors who wanted to “be the difference” in the fight against ovarian cancer by helping women increase their chances of survival. To achieve this goal, Be the Difference Foundation focuses on raising awareness and money to fund programs for women fighting ovarian cancer today and to provide research dollars for a cure. www.bethedifferencefoundation.org
