It's National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
Date:9/3/2014

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

This year, an estimated 22,000 women in the U.S. will get ovarian cancer, according to a just-published study by the American Cancer Society. Of these, two-thirds may die[1]. To honor National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, The Worthy Collection, a charity-influenced apparel brand, has teamed up with The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, a non-profit that helps raise awareness of ovarian cancer, on a fundraising promotion to support the deadliest gynecologic cancer.

Each day this month, The Worthy Collection will put a spotlight on this little-understood health concern by selling themed merchandise – including graphic tees and tops, totes, mugs and pillows -- from its designed collection. The company will donate a portion of the proceeds of each purchase to the Alliance to support this difficult-to-detect but deadly disease. One-of-a-kind apparel by the Collection’s talented designers reflects the color teal—the symbolic color of ovarian cancer.

Each apparel item represents a personal choice in support of women’s health and the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, and is available for purchase starting today at WorthyCollection.org.

“By collaborating with the Alliance and spreading awareness of ovarian cancer, we hope to impact many women’s lives,” said Chris Worthy, Founder of The Worthy Collection. “The Alliance is a powerful voice for everyone touched by ovarian cancer, and we’re proud to be associated with national awareness month.”

Continued Worthy: “Consumers today are using apparel as a means of self-expression to demonstrate their commitment to giving back, and we hope they’ll ‘buy teal’ to support this worthy charity. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is a powerful voice for everyone touched by ovarian cancer, and we’re honored to partner with them. Through our September campaign, we’re doing our part to raise hope for much-needed treatments for this little-understood cancer.”

The campaign is the latest creation of The Worthy Collection. Previous life-changing causes included: women’s rights, orphans, at-risk youth, small business entrepreneurs, clean water and many more.

About National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month:
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month—a time of year dedicated to raising awareness of the deadliest gynecologic cancer. All women are at risk of developing this cancer, and one in 72 will be diagnosed in her lifetime. Since there is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, women are encouraged to make sure they are not another statistic and learn the most common symptoms:

  • Bloating Pelvic or abdominal pain * Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly * Urinary symptoms *
