The Board of the Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition often refers to taking “baby steps” in reaching our goals. As a group that formed out of nothing but a common desire to educate others, we literally started with nothing but sheer determination. This year alone we have received donations amounting to $8500 and counting. The success of our rally, luncheon and the sale of our t-shirts is helping that number grow. Money raised is earmarked for spreading the word on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. We have information packets we mail and provide for anyone interested. We now have the means to expand this effort into areas outside of central Arkansas. We also are excited to be welcoming new members to our task force who bring with them creative ways to further our cause.
Our appreciation to those who have given financial support is tremendous. Not only are we grateful for the monetary contributions, but for the door prizes, graphic design and printing services as well. Thank you does not seem adequate, but our gratitude for those who have given their support and time is immense.
