An idea popped into my mind when I was searching online for information concerning ovarian cancer. How about compiling a list of local ovarian cancer alliances across the country? Many ovarian cancer survivors and their family and friends find it hard to connect with other survivors and their family and friends. I’m hoping that such a list can at least be the starting point from where people in need may form their own supporting group.

Ovarian Cancer Alliances

Nevada: http://www.ocan.org/index.html

Florida: http://www.ocaf.org/

Oregon and Southwest Washington: http://www.ovariancancerosw.org/

Minnesota: http://www.mnovarian.org/

Georgia: http://www.gaovariancancer.org/

California: http://www.ocacalifornia.com/

Ohio: http://www.ovariancanceroh.org/

Colorado:http://www.colo-ovariancancer.org/

Wisconsin: http://www.wisconsinovariancancer.com/

Arizona: http://www.ocaz.org/

Washington State: http://knowthesymptoms.com/

Surprisingly, as you can see, only a small number of states have an alliance or similar organization specifically of ovarian cancer. However, ovarian cancer needs attention! Ovarian cancer survivors and their family and friends need more informational and emotional support! This is what we’re doing all the work for.

If you have any good resource, please feel free to share.
