Annual Survivors' Luncheon
We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon celebrating survivors, their loved ones and their stories at our annual survivors' luncheon in February! It was great to see familiar faces, hear encouraging updates, enjoy beautiful music from a string quartet from the University of Indianapolis and partake in a delicious meal together. Thanks to each person who attended, volunteered and contributed to the event! See photos
Ovarian Cancer License Plates
We are excited to be partnering with the midwest chapter (IL) of NOCC (National Ovarian Cancer Coalition) on an initiative to bring ovarian cancer awareness license plates to Indiana! In the last couple of weeks, we have both been gathering original signatures from folks pledging to purchase a plate once one is approved for sale. All together, we need 500+ signatures. If approved, the license plates should be available for purchase in spring of 2018. A portion of the money generated from the sales will come back to support Ovar'coming Together.
Want to sign up yourself or help us gather signatures?
We'll keep you updated on our progress!
Help us spread the word about ovarian cancer by volunteering at a health fair booth!
Here's what it involves:
