Ovarian cancer is not as well publicized as breast cancer but that makes it all the more dangerous. Last year 21,000 new cases were diagnosed and 15,000 women died of the disease. Two experts will join us to talk about the latest research and take calls from listeners.

Great informative show. I've been going through breast cancer treatment for over a year. I'm getting ready to have my ovaries removed....wish they were already gone. I can't wait to find out if they are's a scary thing, but I'm on pins and needles to hear the pathology report after the surgery. I didn't have the BRCA genes, but still had a strong family history of breast cancer. Anyone else out there going through a similiar thing? Linda
