National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Inc.
October 17, 2012

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008. Fortunately, my Nurse Practitioner aggressively pursued diagnosis and got treatment for me. The night before my first surgery I saw a poster with the symptoms of ovarian cancer on it. That was the first time that I ever saw a list of these symptoms. I got involved with NOCC-CT in 2011 and have helped with two annual walks/run to raise money. I believe that my state chapter does a wonderful job of getting out the word about the symptoms of ovarian cancer...which is their primary mission. They participate in health fairs, man information booths at local community events, work with medical offices and women's health groups to provide information to women about the symptoms. I was Stage three by the time I was diagnosed. I believe that NOCC will help educate women and girls about the symptoms and their risk, helping to save many lives in the future.
