September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Through its eighth annual celebrity shoe auction Stuart Weitzman continues its commitment to bringing the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer to the forefront. Identifying ovarian cancer in its earliest stage may improve survival. We thank you for kindly bidding on these designs to help find a cure for this disease. Proceeds from the auction will support the work of Dr. Marsha Moses of the Folkman Institute at Children's Hospital Boston. Dr. Moses and her team are working to develop a urine test for ovarian cancer.

Most of these symptoms can also be caused by other, less serious, problems.
