About Ovarian Cancer Project

Location:

Ovarian Cancer Project, 8265 Sheridan Drive, Williamsville, NY 14221, US

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide education on the symptoms and risks of ovarian cancer, and to provide support and information for women diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and their families.

Description

Empowering Women: Education, Support & Advocacy

Education:

Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest of all gynecologic cancers, yet most people don't know that ovarian cancer has symptoms or personal risk factors. We work with individuals and groups both at the lay and professional level to ensure understanding of this important and lifesaving information.

Support:

The Ovarian Cancer Project povides women with ovarian cancer and other gynecologic cancers with trusted information and supportive services. From the time of diagnosis to beyond, we provide women with important resources, special insight and hope. Our signature "Comfort & Hope" totes are available to every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer, our Professionally Facilitated Support Group offers women vital face-to-face connections, and help to reduce anxiety and depression. And our Woman to Woman Mentoring program matches trained gynecolgic cancer survivor/volunteers with newly diagnosed women. From diagnosis, treatment and beyond the Ovarian Cancer Project is here to help.

Advocacy:

Treatment for ovarian cancer hasn't changed in over 20 years. At the Ovarian Cancer Project we know the way to helping ensure better treatments for women includes advocating for what's best for a womans health. This includes advocating for reseach funding which we do at both the state and federal levels.

Free:

All of the programs and services of the Ovarian Cancer Project are free of charge.
