Artist For Ovaries is a Wine/Cheese Silent Auction benefiting the Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition. This fundraiser will allow AROVCC to produce and distribute educational material to the women of Arkansas regarding the signs & symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Several local Arkansas Artists are contributing pieces – including yours truly and my dear old friend Amy Lasseigne, whose mother is an ovarian cancer survivor. There is an estimated 45 pieces of artwork to choose from. Sale prices will range from $40-$800.
Here is my stool that will be in the auction. If you like teal, then this will be a great spot for you to find something. Every art piece had to include teal somewhere on the piece. Some may not have as much as mine, though.

- Last year 130 Arkansas women died of ovarian cancer.
- In 2009, over 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer; over 15,000 will die.
- The symptoms are silent, so please listen: pelvic pain, bloating, frequent urination & feeling full quickly.
- If you have had certain forms of hormonal breast cancer you have a higher risk of getting ovarian cancer.
Please come and help support the women of Arkansas .
The Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition (AROVCC) exists with the purpose to educate the public about the signs and symptoms affecting the women of Arkansas . The AROVCC, whose membership is comprised of individuals who each have been personally impacted by ovarian cancer, works to help save lives by disseminating information on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, ovarian cancer research, and resources available. By promoting professional and public awareness through educational materials, mass mail-outs, rallies, seminars and fundraising events the AROVCC has developed into the driving force against ovarian cancer in the State.
