Ovarian Cancer Facts for NJ

Today I made a presentation about ovarian cancer to the members of the Hunterdon Mercer Chronic Disease Coalition. I thought I would share some facts with my readers.

In 2011 there were 699 cases of Ovarian Cancer diagnosed in NJ.
  •  Hunterdon County  7 
  •  Mercer County 28
In 2011 in NJ there were 483 deaths due to Ovarian Cancer
  • Hunterdon County 6 
  • Mercer County 21
I found the information on the NJ Cancer Registry site at   
Information about how to use the site can be found here. It is a three frame window and takes some time to load. 
A link to a report of Cancer Incidence & Mortality in New Jersey, 2007-2011 can be found at

I appreciate the opportunity to present the information for all the Coalition members. 

Every Day is a Blessing!

How interesting. Much rarer than I thought. I guess it helps me understand why there are such limited resources for OVCA in the area.
