I continue to marvel at the tenacity of the survivors and their support systems
My experience with OAK began by accident-a friend had been invited to their annual fund raiser. Being someone who had a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, I also became an honoree! In the years since that introduction, I have watched as OAK supports survivors and their families, reaches out to educate all members of the community about ovarian cancer, advocates within the health care community and in general is a consistently ever present voice for women and their gynocological health. The membership is probably small, I really don't know those numbers but I do know the incredible committment of OAK to life.
I am an ovarian cancer patient since 2001. In 2006 I began regularly attending the survivors monthly meetings. I feel this group has saved my life! From the information shared at these meetings, I have made good decisions relative to my care and progress with this disease. There is no topic to big or to small to be shared. We are all LIVING with our cancer, and most of us are LIVING WELL thanks to this group.
