In 1997, a group of ovarian cancer survivors and advocates banded together to form the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. Almost 15 years later, we have made great strides in our understanding of ovarian cancer. I believe we are poised for even greater progress in the months and years to come.
Here at the Alliance, we are poised for progress. In 2011, we helped secure substantial federal funding for ovarian cancer research. We spoke out in the media and before Congress about the toll this disease takes. We also used the latest technology to reach women with information about ovarian cancer, launching a mobile version of our website and a free app to track symptoms of this disease.
