OVARIAN CANCER NATIONAL ALLIANCE
July 27, 2009

This organization has helped me immensely with information on ovarian cancer and becoming an advocate for the disease. I have attended 4 conferences held in Washington, DC and have gone to Capitol Hill on 2 of these occasions to speak with representatives regarding funding for ovarian cancer research and education. This organization also helped me become a member of the Survivors Teaching Students which enables us to go to medical schools and speak about our experiences with the disease to future doctors, nurses, and others in the health field. They also have an on-line support group that I am involved in daily to assist me and others with information and problems that come up with living with ovarian cancer.
