  • distribute educational literature and materials to area doctor's offices, cancer centers, and hospitals

Volunteers Needed

There are numerous opportunities within the San Antonio Chapter to help raise awareness and educate the community about ovarian cancer:

Events Calendar

Check out the Events Calendar for information about the upcoming 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer.  Not a runner or a walker but would like to help the Chapter?  Contact us at tx.sa.nocc@ovarian.org for volunteer or sponsorship opportunities.

Raise Awareness

Raise awareness about the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer by distributing literature to clinics and doctor's offices in your area.  It only requires about 2 hours each month of your time!  Contact us at tx.sa.nocc@ovarian.org for additional information.

Health Fairs

Health Fairs provide a wonderful opportunity to talk to women one-on-one about the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer and encourage them to really listen to their bodies.  Typically, health fairs are conducted during normal business hours and require about 2-4 hours of your time.  If you are interested in participating in a health fair, contacct us at tx.sa.nocc@ovarian.org.  If your company or group is having a health fair, please let us know.  We would like the opportunity to participate.

Presentations

Another great opportunity to speak to groups of people about ovarian cancer.  If you are interested in being trained to be a speaker on ovarian cancer, contact us.  Or, if you would like for us to give a presentation to your group or organization, contact us at tx.sa.nocc@ovarian.org.

A BIG "THANK YOU" TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT AND WONDERFUL WORK IN RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT OVARIAN CANCER!
