Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban Provide Aid for Ovarian Cancer Victims

For generations, women have all had one thing in common, and that’s the usage of talcum powder to provide comfort and relief to not only their children, but themselves. So it was a devastating turn of events, when links between talcum powder and ovarian cancer surfaced. Fear, outrage, anxiety and sadness spread over the nation like a quiet storm, and women all around the country began to fear that they’d become cancer patients, and hopefully survivors. The hardest part, is that scientists had been trying to raise concerns about this product for nearly 50 years, but unfortunately, the message did not travel far enough. 

Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban understand how terrible this situation truly is, and the magnitude of how many people are truly affected. That’s why we pride ourselves on providing forceful litigation and advocacy across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia in an attempt to help any woman who is now a victim of talcum powder, and a fighter against ovarian cancer.

The attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban have over 200 years of combined legal experience, and we know that we’re your first line of defense against the problems that plague the world today, so we don’t take it lightly when somebody comes to us with a claim.

Tests have shown that women who’ve used talcum powder, a product made up of magnesium, silicon and oxygen, have  25% to 30% greater odds of subsequently contracting ovarian cancer. 

There are numerous indicators in regards to understanding if you have a claim, those may be but are not limited to the following:

  • Biopsy results showing the presence of talc in the body.
  • Family history showing no links to ovarian cancer, cervical, endometrial or uterine cancer.
  • The use of talcum powder in the genital area for the last four (4) years, which was followed up by a diagnosis from a primary care physician that pointed out either ovarian, cervical, endometrial or uterine cancer. This can also apply to women that use products that contain talcum powder/talc.
