About Us

Founded in March 2008 by a handful of gynecologic cancer survivors, Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support Inc.'s primary goal is to offer a forum for sharing experiences, knowledge and assistance to women who face the unique challenges of these types of cancers.
After the initial shock of our own diagnoses and treatment, many of us wanted to meet others who faced their "new" lives with the same questions and specific treatment challenges. 
And, since many of us were ignorant of the early symptoms of ovarian cancer before we knew we had it, we decided to focus our attention on public awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms .
Now about twenty women--and men--meet monthly at 6:30 pm on the third Wednesday at Joseph Beth Booksellers' Bronte Bistro restaurant to share dinner and listen, laugh and learn together.
