Paradise Valley Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner proclaimed on Sept. 8 the month of September to be National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
The town is invited to celebrate this momentous occasion and support the statewide Light Up 4 Ovarian Cancer events organized by the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition – Arizona.
The proclamation stated that the NOCC – AZ requests the town of Paradise Valley to help promote awareness about the “disease that whispers,” honor survivors and remember lives lost by participating in the Light Up events for ovarian cancer awareness.
The mission of the NOCC – AZ is to save lives through the prevention and cure of ovarian cancer and to improve quality of life for survivors and their caregivers. Awareness through education is currently the best tool for early detection and an increased chance of survival.
