Client Served

Rating: 5

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance changed my understanding of life as a survivor of ovarian cancer. First, as a client, I learned about my disease through their education programs. Then I learned about empowerment, testifying on behalf of other women with the disease. Through their outreach efforts, we engaged the underserved and under-informed. We became the voice of patients to healthcare providers and policy makers, and made substantive change. This is a charity that affects every aspect of ovarian cancer - patients, clinicians, researchers, donors, caregivers, lawmakers and the public. Serving on their board is the most honorable role of my life.
