Ovarian Cancer Awareness and a Chance to Win Something Big

Ovarian cancer is a terrible disease that is difficult to diagnose in its early stages. Because of this, most people who find out they have it are already in the more advanced stages. Our family has been personally touched by this cancer and I know many others who have been as well. Perhaps you or a loved one has ovarian cancer. If so, my heart goes out to you because I know how hard it is to see someone suffer and not be able to help them.

Did you know that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month? This month you have a chance to do something to help find an early detection method and, hopefully, a future cure for ovarian cancer. You might win a brand new washer and dryer too!

Throughout this month (September 2009), you can donate $5 to this research during Kelly Ripa's Confidential Textathon by texting "Kelly" to 85944 from a mobile phone. Standard rates will apply. You can also log onto and donate online. You can even send a virtual t-shirt to someone in order to spread the word.

Every time you log onto the website, you'll be entered for a chance to win an Electrolux Turquoise Sky front load washer and dryer. The color is that of the ovarian cancer awareness ribbon and is beautiful.

If you'd like to learn more, please watch the video below. If you cannot donate financially, please help to educate others about the need for an early detection method and continue to pray for a cure.
