COCA provides monthly ovarian cancer information & support groups by telephone to reach women throughout Colorado. These groups are designed especially for those who do not live near a group, or who do not feel up to driving and attending a group in person. Whether you live in Colorado or in a surrounding state, you are welcome to join the call. We use a conference call platform, managed online by the facilitator. Each person has a chance to check in during the call and ask questions, and everyone shares experiences, information hopes and concerns. Please contact COCA for conference line phone number and PIN before attending the first time. See info below.

These are things like handling treatment side effects, talking to friends and family, dealing with insurance companies, or feeling weaker as chemotherapy progresses. We can help you consider your options and give you advice about talking to your doctor. And we can give you support . . . based on our experience as survivors.”
