We are challenging everyone to Step Up for Ovarian Cancer Awareness! This September - take 30 minutes a day for 30 days to go for a walk or run. Talk about signs & symptoms. Spread awareness. Get active and raise funds for research! There is currently no screening tool for Ovarian Cancer and little treatment options. We need your help to change that!

30 Days to Step Up

DID YOU KNOW?  

This year, over 21,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and about 14,000 women will die. There is no screening or early detection test available. Symptoms are subtle which results in only 20 percent of ovarian tumors being detected before they have progressed to an advanced stage.


STAAR Ovarian Cancer Foundation has created the Step Up America for Ovarian Cancer Campaign to raise awareness and funding for research, especially for the rare subtype, Low-Grade Serous Carcinoma.


Every year, women of all ages are affected by ovarian cancer, especially the rare form low-grade serous ovarian cancer (LGSC) which disproportionately affects younger women. The lack of screening tests and limited research for ovarian cancer adds to the importance of educating women about the symptoms of ovarian cancer and the need to raise funding for research, to help give these young women better treatment options and longer lives.  


Funds raised will support ovarian cancer research. STAAR is governed and run 100% by a volunteer board and committee members, half of whom are women previously diagnosed with LGSC. Since 2020, STAAR has contributed to funding two research project at MD Anderson Cancer Center with the most recent funding a LGSC research study for $150,000.
