Crouse Hospital Hosts “Strength And Hope Tea” Sept. 9

08/11/08

Free Event Will Bring Together Women Touched by Ovarian Cancer

Crouse Hospital will host its first “Strength and Hope Tea,” a free event on Tuesday, Sept. 9, to commemorate Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and to give women who have been touched by ovarian cancer a chance to relax, support one another and get an update on new research and treatments for the disease. Mary Cunningham, MD, will lead the discussion during the tea from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Parking in the Marley Education Center and Crouse Hospital garages is also free. To register, call 472-2464 by Sept. 5.

Mary Cunningham, MD, is a board certified gynecological oncologist who has served the Syracuse area for many years. Dr. Cunningham is also a clinical professor at SUNY Upstate Medical University and maintains a private practice, Gyn Oncology of CNY.

Ovarian cancer is called the “disease that whispers,” because it is often diagnosed once it has reached the advanced stages, meaning it has spread beyond the ovaries. Among women in the United States, ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). An estimated 21,650 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year. One in 72 women will experience cancer of the ovaries in their lifetime.
