  1. Dear Stecks: Thank you for this. As you know Laurie was one of those that was misdiagnosed and then crossed that threshold to stage 3 ovarian cancer. This I hope will reach losts of women but as importantly doctors who give these exams. She would be here now if it were done this way. Thanks and wishing the best.

  2. Marsha Boesch says:

    Thank you to all who were involved in getting this legislation passed. No doubt countless hours were spent in the effort. And thank you to CMF for sharing this information.

  3. Ruthie Snyder says:

    Gynecologic cancer education and awareness… or lack of it…affects the health of girls and women of all ages. Four months before I was diagnosed with metasticized ovarian cancer my pap smear came back normal. I believed it to mean that it detected all female cancers and my doctor did not seem to be concerned with my symptoms. Thank you to Kelly Smith, The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Florida, and all involved for passing the legislation that will change the course of detection, recognition, and saving lives.
