Why Give?

OAK takes contributions very seriously. Our team is diligent in making sure all donations directly represent our mission.

Our Mission:

  • To provide resources for support, networking and education for women who are diagnosed with gynaecological cancers and their caregivers in order to improve outcomes.

  • To create awareness among women and the greater community regarding early warning signs that may be indicative of ovarian cancer, resulting in earlier detection and saved lives.

  • To encourage greater citizen participation in gynaecological cancer issues for the benefit of future generations through public education programs, media collaboration and joint ventures with other community organizations.


“I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer two days after my 36th birthday. I first went to an event with OAK only a few months after remission. 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.”
