Impact of Ovarian Cancer on Kentucky Familes

This audio compilation is an entry in Best Public Affairs reporting for the 2013 Kentucky Associated Press Broadcasters awards for radio.

This entry contains two stories on ovarian cancer, and how and why it's one of the most deadly forms of cancer in the world.

Our stories feature insights from two leading ovarian cancer researchers in Kentucky, and comments from a woman whose mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The reports also focus on the importance of early detection of this form of cancer, and include information about support groups and educational activities underway throughout our listening area.
