.PP Yvonne announced the Feb 1st Melvin Jones Fellowship Awards Luncheon at 11AM to be held at the Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors at 1150 Broadway in El Cajon.  Special guest is Past International President Joe Preston and the cost is $25.  Contact Yvonne if you would like to attend but don’t attend meetings where the flyer is available.  We have 29 LCIF Melvin Jones Fellows in our club and it would be great if we have a good turnout.

.Sec Paul reminded us that our club board meeting is this Wed at 6PM.

.Treas Paul is asking anyone who had children at our Christmas Party to call him to confirm how many children you brought to the party so you are not billed for guests that were not adults.

Cindy Silver – Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer

Cindy, Sue and Lynn shared their personal ovarian cancer stories.  Each of these ladies is MY HERO for what they have endured and survived to tell about it.

This is a very important subject as all women are at risk and ovarian cancer is the deadliest of the gynecological cancers.  Pap smears detect cervical cancer NOT ovarian cancer.  Symptoms may be subtle but when detected early and treated properly, more than 90% of women survive longer than 5 years.

Ovarian cancer symptoms are: bloating, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, a need to urinate often or urgently, pelvic or abdominal pain and others commonly reported are fatigue, indigestion, back pain, constipation, menstrual irregularities and pain with intercourse.

Women need to advocate for themselves and see a doctor, preferably a gynecologist, if any of these symptoms occur almost daily for more than a few weeks and they are unusual.

Risk factors are: never having had children, familial connection to cancer of any kind, never having taken birth control pills, beginning ovulation early (very young when first menstrual cycle occurred.

Thanks to PP Don Anthony for setting up his sister Cindy and her ‘sisters’ on this great program.
