|Welcome to O.A.K.'s fundraising page as we participate in the 2013 Kentucky Derby Festival MARATHON/miniMARATHON for Ovarian Awareness of Kentucky! Please Click the donate link to sponsor our team in meeting our fundraising goal of $10,000.00. We must raise awareness and find a CURE!
OAK takes contributions very serious and we are very diligent in making sure that the money goes to supporting our mission which is:
* To provide resources for support, networking, and education for women who are diagnosed with gynecological cancers and their caregivers in order to improve outcomes.
* To create awareness among women and the greater community regarding early warning signs that may be indicative of ovarian cancer, resulting in earlier detection and saved lives.
* To encourage greater citizen participation in gynecological cancer issues for the benefit of future generations through public education programs, media collaboration, and joint ventures with other community organizations.
* Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest of all gynecological cancers. We CAN fight together to win our battle against this disease. We firmly believe that one day there will be a cure for Ovarian Cancer and OAK and its supporters will have been a part of it.
Please help us reach our goals. Tell people about this web site and this cause. At the very least, bring the attention of every woman you know to the information on risk factors and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Working together we can all make a difference.
Thank you for your support and look out as we join together to help "Break the Silence about Ovarian Cancer"!
