Ovarcome is proud to partner with Women Survivors Alliance in celebrating Survivorship. The Women Survivors Alliance has undertaken a national call to action to address the burdens of survivorship issues on women, their families, and by extension, society as a whole. WSA’s mission is to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their 2nd Act. Their vision is to transform survivorship from a mood into a movement by empowering, educating, and connecting women whose lives have been touched by cancer.
