did you know february is ovarian cancer awareness month??

or that today was teal ribbon day?

according to ovarian cancer australia "One in 70 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime. It could be you, your sister, your mum, your gran or your girlfriend.

Every year in Australia around 1500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 850 women will die from the disease."

there is no early detection test or screening for this cancer, so it's really important to be aware of the symptoms
