The diversity of the work I do means that no two days are like any other, and I can be focused on our wonderful community. I love listening and talking to them. Also I work with people I like and respect."
As an ovarian cancer survivor, I love being part of the OCA mission to ensure no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone. There is nothing more important than standing with our women and the families that love them - to listen to them, speak up for them and support and guide them through the most difficult time in their lives. It is a privilege to play my role as a Board member to support the team of OCA, who have dedicated their careers to support these brave, strong women."

It is a privilege to support women with ovarian cancer, to be able to make a difference and by working at OCA this allows me to be able to do that."
Ovarian Cancer Support Nurse
For me being a volunteer is more than just being useful and doing good work. Like any job, if you do not think that you are valued and that you make a difference then you should stop. OCA is an organisation whose task is that “no woman with ovarian cancer should walk alone”. Ovarian cancer is lethal and there is a great need. Because of this the people who work at OCA are motivated and have a single purpose. Why would you not want to help?”
