    The Knight Cancer Institute at OHSU will host the first (in a series) of Facebook Live events on the topic of ovarian cancer on Monday, December 18th at Noon. In this first event, Dr. Amanda Bruegl and survivor Becki McCall will talk about ovarian cancer, and answer questions from those who are participating in the event through the Live feed on Facebook.

    The FB Live event will focus on the basics of ovarian cancer. Participants are asked to keep their questions general, and not patient-specific. The Live event will be taped and available for review later, as well.

    To join the event, live, visit the OHSU/Knight Facebook page at Noon on the 18th: https://www.facebook.com/OHSUKnight/

    This event is hosted in cooperation with the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Oregon and SW Washington.

    Beyond the Sound of Gravel

    Her mother’s 4th child and her father’s 39th, Ruth Wariner spent her childhood in a polygamist Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico. Compassionate, compelling, intimate, and profound, Ruth’s coming-of- age survival story is set in a belief system so fanatical that life beyond its clutches seems impossible. Her book, New York Times bestseller The Sound of Gravel, proves who we are as human beings is stronger than our circumstances and past.

    No Whispering Allowed:
    The Only Taboo is Silence

    Alexandra Fuller has written five books including Don’t Let’s Go To The Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood, a vivid account of growing up in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), with white parents, in revolutionary times in an Africa that was wild, seething, and dangerous. In her powerful and humorous style, Fuller shares the importance of a speaking out as women, as minorities, as peace activists, redefining what voice is to all of us.
