Miss North Carolina United States - 2021

Erika Anne Turner

Ovarian cancer claims the lives of 63% of those diagnosed. My great grandmother and my grandmother both battled this disease, and it has been my mission and passion to bring awareness to the importance of early detection. Early detection is key as this cancer goes unnoticed with extremely vague symptoms; women often aren't aware they have this cancer until it is too late. I have worked for 2 years on a prevention bill passed in my state called Sybil's Bill, in honor of my grandmother. This is a bill for free ovarian cancer screening for all women, BRCA gene or not, and will be presented to the NC State Representatives.
