Learn the facts. Join the movement.

#MoveTheMessage is calling on people from across the country to join the movement to increase awareness and drive early diagnosis of the five gyn cancers.

Learn the Facts

Every five minutes, a woman is diagnosed with one of the five gynecologic (gyn) cancers – cervical, ovarian, uterine/endometrial, vaginal, or vulvar – totaling nearly 115,000 Americans each year.

Many of these people are not diagnosed until the late stages of their disease resulting in more 34,000 people dying each year from a gyn cancer. These cancers affect people of all ages, from their teens through their 80s.

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) urges everyone to LEARN, LISTEN and ACT to maintain their gyn health.

  • LEARN the symptoms and risk factors for each gyn cancer;
  • LISTEN to their bodies;
  • ACT to take preventative steps and seek care first from a gynecologic oncologist when a gyn cancer is suspected or diagnosed.

Join the Movement: Get Social

Simply post an image of yourself in motion – walking, cycling, dancing, or whatever gets you moving – and tag five friends with the message:

Join the Movement: Share Educational Materials

When asked, nine in 10 gyn oncologists said that patient education is very important to help improve patient outcomes and nearly eight in 10 said the biggest barrier to early detection of gyn cancers is lack of awareness.

These materials are available to download for free below and printed copies can be ordered for a nominal fee. Materials are available in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Please share and help #MoveTheMessage about the five gyn cancers and reinforce the importance of early detection.
