Ovarian cancer is a growth of abnormal malignant cells that begins in the ovaries. Tumors found can either be benign or malignant. The cancerous tumors can spread either directly to other organs in the pelvis and abdomen or through the bloodstream/lymph nodes to other regions of the body (cited from ovariancancer.org).
Lambda Delta Psi has set out to assist those suffering from ovarian cancer by continually promoting the awareness of ovarian cancer throughout the local community. Simultaneously, Lambda Delta Psi seeks to raise donations to help research funds for ovarian cancer through events like those hosted during Philanthropy Weeks at our individual colonies. We hope through our actions that one day improved treatments and a possible cure may be found. Currently, Lambda Delta Psi partners up with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
