"I CAN'T EAT ANOTHER BITE!"



                          Appetite change is a common symptom of ovarian cancer.


                                   "Gosh, I was hungry, but already I'm full." 

           IT WAS HER ONLY WARNING SIGN THAT SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT!


                      How much of your meal can you typically eat before you feel full? 

                              100%               75%               50%               25%


***Are you constantly full?

         ***Do you have queasiness or indigestion?

                       ***Are you constipated?

                                      ***Are you bloated?

                                                  ***Have you had a weight change?


          PLEASE see your physician if you are aware of any changes in your appetite for 2 weeks. Keep a diary of your appetite changes; write down your family history of cancer; and take this information to the doctor.

         Ovarian cancer has a 90% survival rate if diagnosed and treated in Stage I. 



                  *** Listen to your bodies and act on any change that is not healthy or normal. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE OR MAKE EXCUSES about what your body is saying to you.




Ovarian cancer does not discriminate. It can affect any age.

    1. Since the symptoms of ovarian cancer are so similar to other disorders, and they "whisper," or difficult to diagnose, I believe it is imperative that information about this lesser known disease be shared.
