We have a new website to spread Meghan's Message of ovarian cancer awareness to more people. Please join us at


Right before Meghan passed away she was preparing to go and speak at Sororities to spread the word about the disease. Now that she is gone her family and friends are doing that for her. Awareness is the key. Because ovarian cancer does not have many survivors ( 78% of women who are diagnosed are diagnosed late when the chance for survival is low), we need you to get involved. Speak up. Speak Out. Just a simple email of the information below will raise awareness. Be a myth buster – make sure all your friends know the symptoms of this disease. Ovarian cancer is not an uncommon disease. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer death among women and kills more women than all the other reproductive cancers combined. Ovarian cancer is hard to detect early. It's cause is unknown. It is the silent killer. Only 24% of ovarian cancer is caught early. Together we can save lives.
