City Council Declares September 19th Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day [VIDEO]: LA This Week - The Ovarian Cancer Circle speaks before the Los Angeles City Council on September 19, 2017, designated Ovarian Cancer Day by the City Council. Presenters included cancer survivors, lead researcher Dr. Sanaz Memarzadeh sharing milestones in ovarian cancer research, and Circle Founder Paulinda Schimmel Babbini discussing awareness efforts and the need for greater support, education, research, and early detection. The presentation culminated in the City Council's unanimous vote (not shown in this abbreviated clip) to present a resolution to the State government that demands insurance companies pay for early detection testing for ovarian cancer.  The Ovarian Cancer Circle is led by Paulinda Schimmel Babbini, who lost her daughter at the age of 20 to ovarian cancer, after an extended time of visiting doctors without a diagnosis. Paulinda asserts that, if an early detection test had existed when they visited doctors, then her daughter would still be alive today.
