Morgan Gaynor was diagnosed with stage IV low-grade serous ovarian carcinoma in September 2019 at age 30. She now volunteers her time to help raise ovarian cancer awareness and raise funds for important life-saving research.

Approximately 300,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year.

When diagnosed in the early stages, the five-year survival rate is over 90%. Unfortunately, most cases of ovarian cancer are diagnosed in the late stages and survival rates are much lower.

Common symptoms of ovarian cancer include:

  • Feeling the need to urinate urgently or often
  • Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Bloating

Other symptoms of ovarian cancer include:

  • Fatigue
  • Upset Stomach
  • Constipation
  • Back pain
  • Pain During Sex
  • Menstrual Changes

If you experience any of the above for two weeks or more, you should consult your doctor.
