Today coincides two very important days for Auggie Apparel, Mother’s Day and World Ovarian Cancer Day.
The American creation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Today we spend the holiday buying flowers or gifts for our mothers, calling them or spending time with them. A time honored Mother's Day tradition in the Babbitt household included flowers in the morning, church with Auggie and a prime rib dinner for the family.
To all the mother's reading this: thank you for everything that you do. We hope you feel appreciated this day and all days. You are our first love, the reason we are born and our greatest gift.
World Ovarian Cancer Day is here! Today is a day where all ovarian cancer organizations all over the world come together to spread knowledge and awareness of the disease.
1. All women are at risk of ovarian cancer
2. Awareness of the early warning signs of the disease could save lives
3. Diagnosis at an early stage vastly improves a woman’s chance of survival
4. Ovarian cancer is often diagnosed at a late stage.
5. Many women mistakenly believe the cervical smear test (Pap test) will detect ovarian cancer.
Signs and Symptoms, a B-E-A-U-tiful acronym:
B - Bloating
E - Eating (trouble eating or feeling full quickly)
A - Abdominal Pain
U - Urinary (Urgency or frequency)
While these signs and symptoms are vague, when multiple are present they are a good indicator of ovarian cancer and should be discussed with your doctor immediately.
