Every woman is at risk for developing a gynecologic cancer. It is estimated that there will be about 95,000 new cases diagnosed and approximately 29,000 deaths from gynecologic cancers in the United States during 2014 (American Cancer Society). Help us draw attention to Gynecologic Cancers - ovarian, cervical, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar, which pose significant threats to women’s health.
