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

Rating: 5 stars  

After my diagnosis of ovarian cancer in 2002, I truly thought my life was over. It was then that I attended my first Ovarian Cancer National Alliance Conference in Washington DC. It changed my life! I was introduced to amazing survivors, top notch doctors and researchers, and an incredibly dedicated and competent staff. That was the beginning of my learning how to become an advocate for ovarian cancer. I currently serve as President of the OCNA Board of Directors, and I could not be prouder of our fine organization. The staff and the board work tirelessly to serve the best interests of the ovarian cancer community.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Seven years ago,the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance made it possible for me to transcend the label of "cancer patient" and become an advocate; it changed my life. I just attended my 8th annual OCNA conference---they keep getting better and better. OCNA is a leader in education, awareness, and advocacy in the area of ovarian cancer. I am proud to be a board member and the president of my local Ovarian Cancer Alliance of OR/SW Wa.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the education of women and health care professionals as well as legislation regarding ovarian cancer
