How You Can Help
Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project
The Ovarian Cancer Awareness Quilt Project was established to educate the public about the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer through the artistry of quilting.
The 2015 Online Quilt Auction will benefit the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Through innovative research, this program aims to develop effective screening methods and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.
Experts recommend women see their health care provider, preferably a gynecologist, if they experience any of the following unexplained conditions almost daily for more than a few weeks
- Pelvic or abdominal pain
- Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
- Frequent and/or urgent need to urinate
