This is an amazing organization that truly touches the lives of so many women. What I love most about this organization is the dedication of the staff and board members. They do work around the clock are are fully committed to the cause. All of the events I have attended have been incredibly well run and carry a spirit of hope and great optimism.

The Great!

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

The dedication of the junior committee---young people that do not have a connection to the disease. They are focused and determined on our work because of the support and leadership provided by Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is a fantastic organization with strong and passionate advocates who support those who are touched by,as well as spread awareness of, this terrible disease - ovarian cancer. I feel truly honored to work with them every year during the annual Conference, and every year I am more impressed by their dedication.

I have been very impressed with all aspects of OCNA and feel that not only does it do fine work but is very well managed. Unlike many non-profits, whose top professionals earn enormous salaries and have minimal commitment to "the casue," many OCNA staff members lives have been touched, either directly or indirectly, by ovarian cancer.

I ran on behalf of OCNA during a past Revlon Run event. It was an inspirational and motivational experience. OCNA has a team of very hard-working and dedicated people so it was an honor to represent them and the cause for which they serve.

I have recently lost a loved one to Ovarian Cancer and turned to this organization for research and support. The organization provides great information about the disease and helped me identify early warning signals. This organization has helped many women identify symptoms of ovarian cancer and catch the disease in the early stages.

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is a very important and well run non-profit organization. So many women do not know the symptoms of this dreadful disease or realize how important it is to recognize them early. Education is needed in all sectors, including medicine,and more research is needed. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance works hard and successfuly at education and awareness building and at research. The organization mixes sound non-profit management and passion for the cause beautifully. All of the leaders in the organization share a passion for saving women's lives, the intellectual grasp of the issues and the needs, and great compassion for those who have had the disease. The stories one hears at their meetings are compelling.

The Great!

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

listening to the stories, in sharing the literature and other awareness building items they produce, and in seeing them succeed in endeavors like Johanna's Law: The Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Law.

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

The commitment I see in all of the leaders and volunteers.

compassionate, caring, intelligent, and effective.

make all women and doctors aware of the symptoms.

As an Ovarian Cancer Survivor I have found great strength, hope and determination after having been associate with OCNA. The staff is very friendly, willing and knowledgeable. I have attended 4 OCNA conferences and participated with 4 Capital Hill Days. The conferences are structured in such a way so that there is always a interesting speaker or lecture to attend

The Great!

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

leaps and bounds. There were more men, women and children involved in Capitol Hill Day in 07/09.

Ways to make it better...

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

Not knowledgeable in the infrastructure of the organization to effectively answer the question.

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

the wonderful people that otherwise I would of never had the chance to meet.

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

friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and more than willing to help in any situation.

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

1) fund a researcher 2) able to have the funds to pay for more women to attend the confeences

Ways to make it better...

there was a little bit more time between the sessions.

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

Again having no knowledgeable of the infrastructure of the organization to effectively answer the question.
