Raising MIOCA's Voice in Washington, D.C.
Eighty survivors and supporters from across the country gathered in Washington D.C. on March 10, 2015 for Ovarian Cancer Advocacy Day. With ten women attending from Michigan, the state was well represented at this event organized by the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. Six of the ten women received an advocacy travel scholarship from the Lori Haber Buckfire Foundation. MIOCA is very grateful for the support of our advocacy efforts.
MIOCA advocates were able to meet with staff from several Senate and House offices. Survivors and supporters shared personal stories and detailed the need for ovarian cancer research funding. Additionally, the need for funding of ovarian cancer education and awareness was discussed.
For those who couldn't travel to DC, both OCNA and MIOCA encourage you to contact Senator Stabenow, Senator Peters, and your US Representative. Please see MIOCA's advocate page for more information.
