Hi everyone, there is currently a glitch in the system that is causing the notifications you'd normally receive to your personal email inbox are not being sent. The platform provider is working on this and hopes to have this fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime, please be sure to sign into OVdialogue often so that you don't miss any conversations, personal messages, or new posts. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Thanks for sharing. I’ve registered 😙 
  • That sounds great @Sandi6 I am positive it will be a great program.  :)
  • I’ve registered as well. ❤️
  • Today was the first session of this six-part series.  It was a rewarding experience to hear the stories of other women who have also been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Despite the differences in each case, there was also a common thread that bound everyone together.  It was a safe space to be able to discuss with others the physical and emotional challenges of dealing with this disease.  A commitment of 1.5 hours once a week for 6 weeks is worth it!  Attending this group helped me feel validated by others who can truly appreciate what it means to have cancer.   
  • That is amazing @HorseGirl Thank you so much for sharing your first experience with Wellspring.  It may inspire others to join when the next session begins.  :)
