Today, May 8th is World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day. The Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (LMOCF) partnered with glassybaby. Today you can purchase NEW limited edition teal ‘strength’ votive candles and 10 percent of all proceeds from each sale will be donated to LMOCF.

Here are four ways to get involved.

1. Give a Gift that Gives Back. Mother’s Day is just days away and Laura Mercier cosmetics donates 100 percent of the profits from the sale of Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette to the Fund. Or pick up the NEW limited edition teal ‘strength’ votive candles from glassybaby.com.

2. Educate yourself about the disease. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers in the United States and most women newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already in advanced stages of the disease.* To learn about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, please visit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s website.

3. Spread the word online and offline. Talk to your friends and family members about what you’ve learned. You can join the Speak Out for Hope conversation online by following @LauraMercier on Twitter and Instagram and use #LMOCF, #SpeakOutForHope to support this important cause. Visit the Stories of Hope Gallery on the Laura Mercier Facebook page for inspiring messages from our community.

4. Donate. Consider a direct donation to LMOCF to continue our mission to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.
