The importance of ovarian cancer awareness can’t be emphasized enough!  Early detection of ovarian cancer can dramatically increase a patient’s 5-year survival rate. Know these symptoms and contact your doctor if they continue for more than two weeks. Please spread the word to your family and friends!


The Mission of Charlene’s Light:

  • Educate women and the community about symptoms of ovarian cancer
  • Raise money for ovarian cancer research
  • Provide support and hope for patients and families

The following video was created by JoAnn Martin, a Charlene’s Light board member who passed away in September 2013.  This video is for all women. It describes the early symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and may help you understand the need for early detection.

About This Foundation

This foundation was created in honor and memory of Charlene Postigo, my dear friend who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the fall of 2006.

Like so many others she had no symptoms, which is very concerning about this type of cancer.  Charlene’s first symptom was actually brought to her attention by her cat one evening, which jumped on her bed and walked across her stomach causing pain. (More)
