September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month!! Youth sports teams around the city can lace up with the Philadelphia Union in supporting the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation’s annual Get Real with Teal campaign. Laces are provided free of charge to youth sports teams while supplies last. Please join us in wearing teal shoelaces for games during September to help spread awareness about ovarian cancer!
Know the symptoms of ovarian cancer:
- Pelvic pain or abdominal pain
- Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
- Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)
* These symptoms are persistent and are a change from a woman’s normal body*
