Did You Know?: Friday, September 25, 2009

Yesterday afternoon I realized that there's less than a week left in National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and I haven't really shared any interesting or important information about the disease on this blog yet. So, I'll start today and share something each day until the end of the month.

Do you know how many notable people have battled this disease? Well, there's a lot. The list includes people like Coretta Scott King, Kathy Bates (surviving), Gilda Radner, McDreamy's mom (surviving), Angelina's mom, Dinah Shore, and Louisa from The Sound of Music (surviving). Check out the full list here.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Rosa De Loro (if you're from CT), Ella Grasso (another CT person) Pierce Brosnan's ex, Patricia Dunn (HP Chair), Madeline Kahn, Miss American 1945 Bess Myerson who is still kicking 30 years post diagnosis!, Liz Tilberis who kicked off Loreal's OVCA awareness efforts which ROCK for us

  2. My mom died of Ovarian Cancer and we should all be aware of this disease. Thanks for bringing attention to it! Teal Toes is a great organization that brings focus to Ovarian Cancer!
