Promoting women’s health with constructive collaborations

The Manja Gideon Foundation has been educating in the field of ovarian cancer for years. And yet again this year, on World Ovarian Cancer Day – May 8, 2023 – the family-run organization will be holding an evening info session with the Zurich Cancer League. The event will take place in Winterthur. Spread the word – knowing the symptoms can save lives, especially with this type of cancer!

A genetic predisposition to ovarian cancer: detecting risk and taking preventive measures. When there are several cases of ovarian, breast and/or colon cancer in a family, this is known as familial clustering. The disease could be caused by an alteration in the genetic makeup.
