National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and CSI: Miami Star Eva La Rue Launch Eva's Divas in Hollywood to Educate Women Nationwide About Ovarian Cancer
Date:9/4/2008

- New Educational Program Kicks Off September's Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Month -

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) launched its newest educational initiative, Eva's Divas, with a celebrity red-carpet event at Boulevard 3 to honor survivors, friends and family who will be the first to pledge to empower and educate women nationwide about the symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. NOCC spokesperson and CSI: Miami star Eva La Rue, who lost both her grandmother and great-grandmother to the disease, is hosting the event in honor of the NOCC and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in September.

"Since there is no screening test for ovarian cancer, it is crucial that women take charge of their reproductive health by educating themselves about the disease and learning 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. "By encouraging women to be proactive, pay attention to their bodies and to educate one another through their strong networks of friends, family and acquaintances, together we can make a difference in increasing the low survival rate of ovarian cancer."

To become an official member of the Eva's Diva's initiative, women are encouraged to visit http://www.ovarian.org/evasdivas, where they can pledge to learn about ovarian cancer and to "pass it on" to all of the important women, friends and families in their lives. The site also offers important information about ovarian cancer education, an e-card that women can forward to other Divas and fun tips from Eva on how to raise awareness in the Diva's community.

"NOCC is very excited to launch Eva's Divas, NOCC's newest educational initiative under the auspices of our signature Break the Silence campaign," said NOCC Ch
