OVARIAN CANCER NATIONAL ALLIANCE
June 17, 2010
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.
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.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
compassionate, caring, intelligent, and effective.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make all women and doctors aware of the symptoms.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every six months
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
General Member of the Public & I have received their excellent literature and shared it with all the women I know. We have attended their benefits and heard the stories of cancer survivors and of families of women who did not survive.
