Knowledge is power

Eierstockkrebs event Zurich Manja Gideon Stiftung

Hereditary ovarian cancer risk and the power of self-help will be the main topics covered at the next event of the Manja Gideon Foundation and Zurich Cancer League on May 6. The symptoms, the significance of BRCA mutations, the limitations of screenings, and the benefits of studying your family history will all be addressed at the evening info session. Plus, we were able to get Janna Ulrich to join us. She will be talking about what self-help groups have to offer – aside from radically honest conversations.

World Ovarian Cancer Day is on May 8, so campaigns around the world will focus on the disease in early May. We are actively involved in educating the public about ovarian cancer and building a knowledge network.

Participation is free of charge.
