— Grace Elizabeth, NOCC Global Awareness Ambassador
DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since receiving the news that her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Grace Elizabeth has been steadfast in her mission to share their collective experience and help raise awareness for a disease that many are unaware of. “Early detection is KEY to a successful treatment and recovery, but unfortunately, the symptoms can be quite mild until the cancer has progressed into more aggressive stages,” said Grace Elizabeth, “This is why it’s so important for women everywhere to be educated on the signs, symptoms, and risk factors.”
Grace Elizabeth’s newly-established partnership with the NOCC allows her to use her platform to educate the public on ovarian cancer and ensure that people around the world have the power to advocate for themselves and their loved ones. “We are honored to have Grace Elizabeth’s voice and partnership in shining much-needed light on this devastating disease,” said Melissa Aucoin, CEO. “Reaching women and empowering today’s generation in communities across the globe is not only our shared passion but critical to NOCC’s vision in which no woman ever loses her life to ovarian cancer.”
There is currently no detection test for ovarian cancer, and anyone born female is at risk for this disease. When caught early, the five-year survival rate is 93 percent, so early awareness and education must be shared worldwide to ensure that everyone has the knowledge to assess their risk and take action. On Sunday, May 8th at 1 pm ET, NOCC and Grace Elizabeth will take to Instagram live for a panel discussion with other survivors and caregivers on World Ovarian Cancer Day. The discussion will focus on the patient and caregiver experiences and provide actionable steps that others can take to help spread the word on this global day of action.
