Mt Orab Food Court Sells Hearts for Gynecological Awareness

The Mount Orab Food Court raised $450 for the Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope during Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. During January, the Food Court sold hearts to customers and donated the proceeds to the Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope. 

The Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope is a non-profit organization raising awareness for gynecological cancers. Their mission is to empower, encourage, and educate women to eliminate gynecological cancer related deaths. Jaymie Jamison lost her ten month battle to cervical cancer in February 2011. Cervical cancer deaths can be prevented with early detection. Cervical cancer is cause by HPV, which almost every sexually active man and woman come into contact with during their lifetime. Certain types of HPV can cause cervical cancer. Yearly screenings and Pap smears help detect cervical cancer. Other symptoms include pain or bleeding during or after sexual intercourse, unusual bleeding, or an unusual discharge. If you experience any of these symptoms for two weeks or long immediately see your doctor. Knowing the signs and symptoms, and seeing your doctor yearly can save your life. It whispers, so listen. 

Thank you to the Mount Orab Food Court for your support of our organization. Thank you to everyone who purchased a heart. To learn more about our organization please
