Last January a customer contacted me to tell me about a scrapbook she was working on to be presented at a fundraising golf tournament for Ovarian Cancer. Because of her project, my "Courage, Strength, Awareness Template Pack" caught her eye. Although that particular template pack was created to increase breast cancer awareness, she was interested in that template pack for her ovarian cancer charity work. She inspired me to create a template pack to open up discussion in digi-land on ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer isn't detected by a regular pap test, and women need to become aware of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, and start conversations with their health care provider about screenings if they are concerned. I did not know the symptoms of ovarian cancer or that it isn't detected with a pap exam before I started this project. I know I feel better being more educated about this. I hope you do to.
I'm now going to show you this fabulous template pack, and at the end of this post you will find the symptoms and warning signs for Ovarian Cancer! You'll also find a FREEBIE, my free gift to you. Make sure you read this post all the way to the bottom!
Use the Break The Silence: Ovarian Cancer Awareness Template Pack to scrap pages in special honor of those who have or had the disease, or you can use the template pack to scrap any special memory.
