Hello All, 

My little sister just passed away this Tuesday 6/4/13 , when making funeral arrangements I've been asked from several people is there a place they could donate to the memory in her name. I was really hoping to find something more specifically for ovarian cancer  or Dysgerminoma the actual type of cancer she had. Can anyone suggest or know of one I could use?

Thank you so much,

Very sorry about your little sister's passing. Please accept my condolences.

A few ovarian cancer charities I know of:

http://www.ovationsforthecure.org/ Ovations for the Cure of Ovarian Cancer

http://www.ocrf.org/ Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

http://www.ovarian.org/ NOCC - National Ovarian Cancer Coalition

http://www.therobincancertrust.org/ovarian-cancer.html The Robin Cancer Trust (specific to dysgerminoma in 16-35 year olds)

Serena, I am sorry. I can't imagine how you feel. I think Alexandra gave you great, ovarian specific cancer organizations, the link below is to the Foundation for Women's Cancer. It is just another suggestion. Any organization that is going to help cure this evil disease is worthy.

Dear Alexandra, 

Thank you so much for your kind words and these sites. This was very helpful. I wish you and your family the very best with your battle. No matter what please stay strong and positive! My baby sis was 19 and she fought a 10 month battle with a smile on no matter how bad the day or pain. This truly meant a lot for I tried to search around and never truly found something. Thank you again.
