September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Seventh Generation wants to help women better understand the signs and symptoms associated with the disease. (For more information, visit www.letstalkperiod.com). Since we started our second annual campaign on September 1st, more than 1,000 people have joined the cause. I have also heard many stories from people who have struggled with the disease or who have lost loved ones to it. Today I met with a group of colleagues who lost a beloved friend to the disease. I read your stories of heartbreak and support as you engage with Seventh Generation online. We hear you when you call with gratitude. The fact that most cases of ovarian cancer are not caught until the cancer is advanced creates a sense of urgency that we cannot afford to ignore. One woman with ovarian cancer is one too many.
Help us help women: For every person who shares their email address, Seventh Generation will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), up to $10,000. The donation will be used specifically for OCRF's programs supporting women bravely fighting this disease.
Please help us reach our goal and help our sisters in their fight against this deadly disease. We all depend on one another. Please also share this with your family and friends.
