    Women's Ovarian Cancer Retreat

    Women with cancer are often forced to balance their own health care needs with roles as professionals, caregivers, mother, daughters and wives. The five-day retreats enable them to set aside daily routines, focus on their own needs and develop a core community of support. Camps are free to attend, but a camper must provide her own transportation. Space is limited. Sign up to attend.


    A fall retreat is scheduled for ovarian cancer survivors and is in September 2018. Registration for that opens in Summer 2018.

    Join us for a two-part series on May 19th, led by Susan Hedlund, MSW, LCSW, OSW-C of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.

    Part 1: Communicating Effectively About Ovarian Cancer. 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

    The morning workshop will focus on how to communicate more effectively to other women about ovarian cancer. This workshop is designed as a training for ovarian cancer survivors who want to volunteer to mentor local women newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer or facing a recurrence. It will be both an introductory course on peer mentoring, and will be a review for those who are already Peer Mentors with the Ovarian Cancer Alliance. This workshop is also open to any survivor who is simply interested in learning better communication skills. 

    Lunch: 11:30 to 12:30 p.m.

    The lunch break will be an opportunity to network with other survivors and participants. Please bring a brown bag lunch or take-out from the Daily Cafe in the lobby of the CHH. There is no need to register for this; just come if you can.

    Part 2: Dealing with Recurrence and the Fear of Recurrence. 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

    The afternoon workshop will focus on dealing with recurrence and the fear of recurrence.

    Registration (Morning Session, Afternoon Session, or Both) is required. Participation is open to all, and is free of charge.

    It is time to assemble more teal "By Your Side" chemo care kits and we'd love some volunteer help in putting them together!

    Each BYS kit includes an ovarian cancer resource guide, a teal fleece blanket, a water bottle and notebook. Once put together, additional volunteers will deliver them to chemo treatment centers across Oregon and SW Washington where they are given out free of charge to any woman who is newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer or facing a recurrence.

    If you can't volunteer, but love the idea of the BYS kits, consider a donation to OCAOSW. Each kit costs about $45 to make.

    Ovarian cancer survivors and members of the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Oregon and SW Washington are having lunch together in Medford on June 7th.

    The lunch will be informal, and a simple way for ovarian cancer survivors from southern Oregon to meet other ovarian cancer survivors who live in the Medford/Ashland area, plus a few additional survivors from the Portland area. The lunch will be hosted and paid for by the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Oregon and SW Washington; friends and family are welcome, too, but are asked to cover their own lunch.

    Please register to attend so we know how many to expect.

    Note: we define "Survivor" as any woman who has ever received an ovarian cancer diagnosis, whether she is N.E.D. (yeah!), in current treatment for a first-time diagnosis, or facing a recurrence.
