In October 2012, a dream was realized for two dynamic ovarian cancer survivors: Anne Tonachel and Robin Bray. Their dream was to provide a restorative retreat for other ovarian cancer survivors in the northeast. When the amazing Kennedy family of Camp Kieve and The Kennedy Learning Center provided the retreat space (in honor of a family member with ovarian cancer), this restorative retreat was born.
The Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) will be holding its national conference from Sept 29 - Oct 2.
In their own words: Join us (virtually) September 29 – October 2!
The global pandemic may have upended our original plans but it can’t stop us from uniting the ovarian cancer community from all over the world. The format may be different (no in-person hugs) but we promise to provide the same eye-opening, educational content from the country’s top researchers and doctors about every aspect of ovarian cancer, including treatment, wellness, advocacy and survivorship, as we always have but this time with a few surprises.
While we’re undeniably disappointed that we won’t be able to see everyone in person, there is a significant up-side to moving our conference online: Now anyone who wants to attend will have the chance, no travel necessary! We’re excited to expand our strong and welcoming community to reach even more people with important updates in the ovarian cancer field and OCRA’s patient support programs.
Past attendees have said that this conference is a can’t miss event for the ovarian cancer community: a gathering of hope, inspiration, new found knowledge and sisterhood.
