                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
  Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress 
should devote resources to researching treatment options for women with 
  ovarian cancer and support community groups that promote awareness 
            about the disease and encourage early diagnosis.

Whereas the American Cancer Society predicts that 14,300 women will die of 
        ovarian cancer and 25,400 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed in 
        2003;
Whereas among women in the United States ovarian cancer is the the 7th most 
        common cancer and the 5th most common fatal cancer;
Whereas ovarian cancer kills 5 percent of all women who die from cancer, a death 
        toll higher than any other gynecological cancer;
Whereas ovarian cancer occurs in the United States with the same frequency as it 
        did in 1973, but the mortality rate for women diagnosed with ovarian 
        cancer has decreased by about 12 percent due to increased awareness and 
        groundbreaking medical research;
Whereas most cases of ovarian cancer occur in women over the age of 50;
Whereas in a majority of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the cancer is only 
        detected after it has spread, which significantly reduces survival 
        rates;
Whereas organizations such as the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and its 
        state and local chapters work everyday to improve the lives of women 
        affected by ovarian cancer;
Whereas the Federal government devotes millions of dollars annually to research 
        increasingly successful treatment regimens and diagnostic tools to 
        detect ovarian cancer in its early stages; and
Whereas President George W. Bush declared September 2002 as National Ovarian 
        Cancer Awareness Month to raise awareness about this disease and 
        encourage women to undergo regular health screenings: Now, therefore, be 
        it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Congress should continue to devote resources to 
        researching diagnostic tools and methods and treatments for 
        ovarian cancer; and
            (2) Congress should support community groups that raise 
        awareness about ovarian cancer in their work to improve the 
        lives of women affected by ovarian cancer.
