  • Share with you the suite of OCA coordinated support programs and services for consideration including our Resilience Kit for newly diagnosed women, face-face-support groups in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and the national tele-support group

  • Provide non-medical referrals to the support programs and services offered by other cancer support organisations in your respective State

  • Provide information on where to seek support of a financial, emotional or psychological nature

  • Be that person who will listen and allow you to work through the various challenges as they arise.

However please note, we are unable to:

  • Provide an ovarian cancer diagnosis or suggest a particular treatment plan in isolation or direct contradiction to the recommendations suggested by your specialist

  • Issue medical referrals or be seen to favour a particular oncology specialist over another

  • Endorse products and/or services that require membership, come at a cost or require significant personal investment with potentially serious implications (ie alternative therapies, genetic testing)
