CLARKSDALE – One group of Coahoma Community College students capped off the month of September by raising awareness about Ovarian Cancer on campus.

C:\fakepath\OvarianCancer1.jpgMembers of CCC’s Phi Beta Lambda passed out teal ribbons to CCC faculty and staff this week in honor of those who have Ovarian Cancer and in memory of loved ones who have lost their lives to this disease.

The mission of Phi Beta Lambda is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs, and the project was part of the organization’s commitment to perform community service projects.

“We began passing the ribbons out Monday and Tuesday to faculty and staff,” said Instructor Kimberly Hollins, Phi Beta Lambda advisor. “Our goal is to bring awareness and admonish all women to pay attention to their bodies because early prevention is the best prevention.”

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer can include: Persistent abdominal bloating, a loss of appetite, feelings of pressure in the pelvis and frequent urination.

“There are many symptoms to disease, but we know that early prevention is the best prevention,” said Hollins.
