I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer two days after my 36th birthday. It hit like a ton of bricks, but I fought hard and won! I never realized how much I needed people around me that had went through the same thing.

I first went to an event with OAK only a few months after remission (I wish I would have gone sooner). After that event, I couldn’t stop smiling. I had found my people. I’ve often said, this is not necessarily a sorority I wanted to be a part of, but it has joined me with some of the most amazing women I’ve ever met and for that I am grateful.

Being involved with OAK has given me hope, drive, and friendship. I’m beyond thankful for all they do for their survivors, as well as helping the cause to find a test. OAK is my sorority and I’m proud to be a part of it.
