Review for WISCONSIN OVARIAN CANCER ALLIANCE INC, Oak Creek, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went in for a hernia operation and that is when they discovered a massive ovarian cyst which turned out to be Stage 4 cancer. After completing my chemotherapy they don't see anymore cancer right now. I hope it stays that way. During my treatment, I received a care bag from the Wisconsin ovarian cancer alliance that brought me a lot of information I was missing. I realized that it is up to us that are dealing with ovarian cancer to spread the word. I gave a temple talk at my church about ovarian cancer and stressed to all the women that they need to be aware because there is no test. My CA125 cancer test was only 35 and yet I was in stage 4. So that isn't even very helpful. I was so happy to know that the Wisconsin Ovarian Cancer Alliance existed to help me thru this time. I hope I am here for a long time to help others that come along with ovarian cancer.

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

spread the word faster to more women and ovarian cancer could be caught in the early stages.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  General Member of the Public & I gave temple talk at my church to spread the awareness.
