Larry King, host of Larry King Live, interviewed Dr. Beth Karlan, the Communication Chair for the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (at that time, named the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation) on his popular evening CNN show. As a result of the interview and promotion of the Foundation’s hotline, calls increased by over 60% in the subsequent months thanks to the leadership and support of Mr. King.
After surviving cancer, women look for a community of support and guidance. In a video produced by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, survivors share how they live and thrive after endometrial cancer. As described by one survivor, “You can get better.”
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. After creating the month in 1999, the Foundation strives to bring attention about these cancers through public awareness campaigns.
