Review for Hera Women's Cancer Foundation, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have participated in HERA events and have also, through my own small Ovarian Cancer related non-profit, been a grant recipient. I first heard of HERA shortly after completing my original treatment for ovarian cancer. I was thrilled to find an organization that supports basic, front line research. My family and I were thrilled to participate in a Climb 4 Life event. The climbing is a wonderful way to get folks involved-- beyond the usual running crowd. A highlight of the events is having the local recipients of research monies come to describe their research.

Review for Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

If you have been touched by ovarian cancer, you must know OCNA. They are the clearinghouse for all information about the disease and new treatments. They are also the umbrella for local chapters that work on getting the word about about awareness and that raise money for research. But the most amazing program is Survivors Teaching Students. Ovarian cancer survivors go into medical school classrooms and describe their experiences so that the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals of the future will keep this disease in mind.

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

participating in the Survivors Teaching Students program.

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

FABULOUS, WONDERFUL, ENERGETIC!!!

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

have a greater reach.

Review for Planet Cancer, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 36. This meant that I was at least 20 years younger than anyone else I met who was going through treatment. Planet Cancer helped me to connect with people dealing with the same things that I was. I cannot say enough good things about this organization!

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

the retreats I have been able to attend.

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

FABULOUS! AWESOME! WONDERFUL!

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

Help even more young adults facing cancer, allowing them to survive well and give back to society.
