Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

We invite anyone with an interest in raising awareness about ovarian cancer to join our efforts. We participate in health fairs, speaking presentations and outreach events throughout the year.
