I am almost one year cancer free (ovarian cancer). I have attended two functions in the past few months. One was Shot with the Doc where I learned the meanings of many of the terms I heard during my diagnosis and treatment. It was very insightful. Most recently attned a holiday luncheon where Dr. Burrell spoke about about mind over body and the connection to wellness. This helped me to put many of my thoughts in perspective. I look forward to more events where I can learn more about this disease. I want to be ahead of the game with knowledge if I have to go through treatments again. A fringe benefit is talking with other patients.

I think what you have done with the SEGO Buddy program is nothing short of amazing! In my opinion, you deserve others to know what an amazing job you are doing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have to tell you how much I enjoyed the Summer Dream Luncheon. I thought the presentation was very interesting and worthwhile. It was such a good reminder of what I've long believed: how you "feel" about battling cancer has a lot to do with surviving it

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create more in depth "presentation series" - expand the presetations to include "hands-on" training of complementary therapies for gynecologic cancer patients and surviviors.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful time together with my fellow survivors (always precious!).

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and made us all feel so important and special.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the frequency of their special programs for gynecologic cancer patients and expand their programs across the country.

Ways to make it better...

more survivors who have completed treatment would get involved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

swiftly raising awareness of the organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Every donation to this organization, no matter the size, will allow women to expereince their cancer treatment and survivorship journey with the support of so many other amazing gyn cancer survivors.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
