Raise your glass this holiday season and join the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance in a Toast to Progress as we honor the women battling ovarian cancer and remember the courage of those whose lives have been lost to the disease.
This year, generous contributions helped the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance reach the following milestones:
- Launched The Teal Journal: A Periodical of Progress – the first online quarterly publication to inform the public about the state of ovarian cancer research;
- Hosted a standing room only Congressional briefing in Washington, DC to educate Congressional staff about Congress’s role in fighting ovarian cancer by supporting funding levels for ovarian cancer programs — the federal government funds 90% of ovarian cancer research conducted in the United States;
- Expanded the Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women’s LivesSM program – now educating students in 85 (more than two-thirds) of the medical schools in the United States and 33 nursing and physician assistant schools nationwide;
- Worked with professional societies to develop evidence-based practice guidance for prompt diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer
But the glass is only half full. Your support will allow us to achieve these goals in 2011.
