Is it teething time for your little one?

 

The mother of a young woman who passed away after a short battle with ovarian cancer has called for women everywhere to listen to the ‘whispers’ of the disease, which can go unnoticed.

 

Corkwoman Emer Casey was just 27 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March 2006, and she went on to lose her battle with the disease three months later, just days after her 28th birthday.

 

As the Casey family mourned the loss of their beloved daughter, they set up The Emer Casey Foundation in her name, to raise awareness of the illness and its symptoms.

 

This week marked a milestone in the journey of the Emer Casey Foundation, with the family presenting two mobile ultrasound scanners for use at St James’ Hospital, in Dublin.

 

Speaking at the presentation, Emer’s mum Juliette told the Irish Examiner: “It is said that it is the disease that whispers, so you should listen carefully. Know your body and what is normal for you.”
