The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Oregon and SW Washington is here for you.

That means that whether you are facing a new and frightening diagnosis of ovarian cancer, dealing with a recurrence, or have a family member or friend who is, we are here to provide information, support, and most of all, hope.

We have a Peer Support program that connects trained ovarian cancer survivors to women who are newly diagnosed or faced with a recurrence. We issue a monthly e-newsletter that contains timely information about education, events and resources. And, we are involved in the local ovarian cancer community hosting an annual medical update, networking opportunities and other events. For information about local support groups that meet regularly, look at our "local support" page, or to read the personal story of a different ovarian cancer survivor, go to the "In Her Own Words" page, or read this month's featured story below.

"In Her Own Words" by Monica Marvin

In March 2013, I was living an ideal life. At age 66, I had a rewarding career as Director of Legal Affairs for my favorite alma mater in an amazing Oregon community; I had an active social life, and frequent interaction among my adult children on the East Coast and family members in California. I did not know anyone who had a more blessed existence.
