Crouse Hospital Hosts “Strength And Hope Tea For Women Touched By Ovarian Cancer”

08/11/08

Crouse Hospital will host its first “Strength and Hope Tea for Women Touched by Ovarian Cancer,” a free event on Tuesday, Sept. 9 to commemorate Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and to give women who have experienced the disease a chance to relax, support one another and get an update on new research and treatments for ovarian cancer. 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 Avenue. To register, call 472-2464 by September 5.

Crouse Hospital OB/GYN surgeon Mary Cunningham, MD, is a gynecological oncologist who has served the Syracuse area for many years. Affiliated with Crouse Hospital, Dr. Cunningham is also currently teaching as a clinical professor at SUNY Upstate Medical University and maintains a private practice, Gyn Oncology of CNY, PC.

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.
