September is Ovarian Cancer Month in McKean County

Staff Writer

SMETHPORT — Susan Evans of Bradford believes women should be more aware of the “silent killer”— ovarian cancer.
Evans, a survivor of the deadly disease, has been instrumental in calling attention to the cancer.
Prompted by Evans and her husband, George, the McKean County Board of Commissioners voted 3-0 Tuesday to proclaim September as Ovarian Cancer Month.
Commissioners Cliff Lane, Carol Duffy and Tom Kreiner approved the proclamation at a business meeting at the county courthouse.
“You don’t know until you have it,” Evans said in discussing ovarian cancer— the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women.
