Allied Support Group

In 1998, the Foundation for Women’s Cancer created the Allied Support Group consisting of newly formed national ovarian cancer advocacy organizations to promote open dialogue and collaboration among the advocacy groups. The Foundation agreed at that time to host semiannual meetings and to serve as the “administrator” of the Allied Support Group. Over the ensuing few years, the Allied Support Group expanded its membership to include other gynecologic cancer related advocacy and research organizations. As currently constituted, the group represents most of the leading national and some international organizations that have interest in women’s gynecologic cancer health.
