On Tuesday, Feb. 1, the St. Isabel Women’s Guild invites members of the community and visitors to attend a program on “Ovarian Cancer Awareness,” presented by Captiva resident and accomplished artist Stella Farwell, at 10 a.m. in the St. Isabel Parish Hall.

Farwell’s upbeat presentation features a 10 minute DVD as part of the program, which evolved because no organization in Southwest Florida promotes ovarian cancer awareness. Farwell, who has dealt with the disease for years, has become a one-person campaign on the subject, hoping to spread awareness of this often misdiagnosed disease to both men and women.

No reservations are necessary.

St. Isabel’s is located at 3559 Sanibel-Captiva Road.
