Ovarian Cancer accounts for approximately 3 percent of cancers in women. While the 8th most common cancer among women, Ovarian Cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer related death among women. In 2007 my world was rocked to the core by this illness. My mother Berdena Mae Hines had fallen ill with Ovarian cancer which lead to her transition. Exactly 11 months later my oldest sister Phylicia McGlory passed away of the same illness. I lost a beautiful woman who in a short time made one of the biggest impacts on my life Cleta Diane Fields. If that was not enough a wonderful woman who was a mother to me in so many ways and I worked with for over 10 years Hazel Robinson was also taken by Ovarian Cancer. So needless to say i was completely over Cancer period! In all my pain and broke was I had to turn my pain into working my passion. My passion became my purpose and there you have it Mae Day was birthed. A day devoted to promoting Ovarian cancer awareness to help all women. TEAL is the color Taking Early Action and Live!
