September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and ImmunoGen is supporting initiatives focused on raising awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms, research and care.
Throughout the month, patient advocacy groups such as the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA) will host events, social media and advertising campaigns to highlight the importance of early detection, treatment and hope for patients.
One way ImmunoGen is recognizing initiatives that are helping bring awareness to ovarian cancer, is with teams of ImmunoGen employees participating in local NOCC “Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer” events.
