"We need $10 million in research to make real progress against ovarian cancer."

          When focus group participants were polled about the multi-award winning "Ladyballs" campaign for ovarian cancer awareness, Elisabeth Baugh noticed women were emboldened.
          Asked if the controversial tagline, "Have the ladyballs to ask for help," was too strong, the response was firm. "Not strong enough. I have the ladyballs to demand action!"
          Progress takes money, so Ovarian Cancer Canada is underlining funding inequality in cancer research and demanding government support.
         "Outcomes haven't significantly improved in 50 years. Research has stalled. From 2010 to 2013, the federal government invested $119.5 million in breast cancer research, but only $27.1 million in ovarian cancer."
          Elisabeth says $10 million more would help ovarian cancer researchers make great strides.
          She is urging Canadians to go to www.ovariancanada.org/ advocate to customize letters to their elected officials.
         "Together, we can have an impact. It's a historic time for our country and women comprise half the Cabinet. Government needs to make a historic change for women with this disease."
