You will be notified in your meeting reminder email if family members or others are invited to attend.

Survivors of ovarian cancer are invited to join our membership. Membership includes our quarterly newletter, notice of monthly meetings and special events, and other news of interest to ovarian cancer patients and survivors. Membership is free. Your level of participation is entirely up to you. We welcome all the assistance we can get in spreading awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms.

We also welcome volunteers and advocates.  If you or someone you know has ever been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, send us a note to let us know!
