Friday, May 8th, 2020 was World Ovarian Cancer Day—a day set aside to raise awareness and unite against the disease.

NormaLeah Ovarian Cancer Initiative is a strong QCA advocacy group. Jodie Kavensky, founder & director of the group came on PSL to talk about the latest in the fight against ovarian cancer including research and medications.

She also mentioned that the originally-planned Spring girlparts Gala had to be postponed due to COVID. It is tentatively slated for August 29th, 2020. (There is a November date set aside, too, in the event that there is another cancellation).

Erin Jeskie, the longest local survivor of ovarian cancer also joined the discussion to celebrate her 25th anniversary of being cancer-free. Jeskie was diagnosed at just 19 years old!

Paula Sands also recently marked her 9th “Cancerversary” of having survived ovarian cancer.
