Inspire a Change. Support the Cause.
Laura founded the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund in September 2012, aiming to shine a light on a disease that has been in the shadows for far too long. Our mission is to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer. Each September Laura creates a specially designed, limited-edition product and invites you to shop for a cause, with 100% of the proceeds going toward the fund.
Ovarian Cancer -
What You Need to Know
Ovarian cancer will affect 1 in 70 women in the United States, and is the deadliest gynecologic cancer. Detection remains an extreme challenge, because no reliable early screening method exists. The symptoms are frequently subtle, and resemble those of common, benign conditions. The following signs may indicate ovarian cancer—persistent bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, or urinary symptoms such as urgency or frequency. If you, or anyone you know, is experiencing similar symptoms, we encourage you make an appointment with your gynecologist.
