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 Natalie Leithem

I am 53 and have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 30 years. We have 3 adult children ranging in age from 22 to 28. In 2013, my family and I celebrated two big occasions:  the birth of our first grandbaby and the wedding of our oldest daughter. Life looked great. Little did I know what was to come.
