Many women tell us that they attend the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance Annual Conference year after year. In our 2011 Annual Report, Nancy recalls attending her first conference the day after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer: “The ladies were so wonderful. They greeted us with open arms. They gave us all strength and courage… We’re coming again this year, and we’ll keep coming every year. I’ve learned something every time we go.”
Helen agrees: “I came to my first conference in 2002, not sure what to expect. Over the years I have gained so much knowledge while hearing from the top gynecologic oncologists in the country and I have made wonderful lasting friendships.”
Our next conference, Poised for Progress, will take place in Washington, DC, on July 14-17, 2012. Tell us why you’re looking forward to attending–and you could win a special prize!
For the next week, if you help spread the word about the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance Annual Conference on Facebook, you will be entered to win a basket of teal goodies and ovarian cancer awareness materials. Here’s how to enter:
- First, share our Facebook event page with your friends online.
- Next, post a comment on our event page telling us why you are excited to attend our Annual Conference this year
We will randomly select one commenter to receive a prize basket from the Alliance. The contest closes at noon EDT on Friday, April 20.
