igns and symptoms of this disease and know how to broach this important topic with their physician, especially if they have a family history of ovarian, breast or colon cancer," said NOCC spokesperson, Eva La Rue. "I am so pleased and honored to be able to work with NOCC and PureOlogy to achieve this important mission through the Eva's Divas campaign and the 5k walk. Together we can make a difference in increasing the low survival rate of ovarian cancer."

In addition to the national walk in LA, NOCC and PureOlogy are partnering in a year long campaign to facilitate a greater dialogue that will lead to earlier diagnosis, improved survival rates and quality of life for women with ovarian cancer. As part of the campaign, they are hosting 20 other Walks to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer across the country and providing women with important educational information on ovarian cancer in PureOlogy salons across the country. PureOlogy will be on-site at each walk distributing travel packs containing PureOlogy HydrateShampoo, Condition, and teal wristbands to participants.

"Ovarian cancer is a serious disease that affects thousands of women around the world, and in women age 35-74, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths," explains Senior Vice President of Marketing for PureOlogy, Karen Fuss-Zipp. "Finding a cure for ovarian cancer is a cause that is very close to the hearts of the PureOlogy family and we're eager to help NOCC advance their mission."
