Why is Awareness Needed?

  • Alabama is one of the number one state with the highest rate of death from cervical cancer
  • Alabama is one of the top four states with the highest rate of death from ovarian cancer
  • There is no early detection/screening test for ovarian cancer. It is usually found in late stages and has a high recurrence and mortality rate.
  • Women of all ages and ethnicities are at risk and need to know the signs and symptoms of all GYN cancers
  • Groundbreaking research is happening throughout the State of Alabama


The Laura Crandall Brown Foundation works to increase awareness about GYN cancers and their signs and symptoms, as well as encouraging women to know their bodies and what is normal for them.  Some of our awareness activities include:

  • Statewide Speaker's Bureau
  • Awareness Integration with Corporate Wellness Programming
  • Targeted Outreach
  • Public Awareness Campaign
  • Statewide Lighting Campaign
