Advocacy means taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights and represent their interests. As an ovarian cancer advocate, you are in the unique position to help your communities obtain the services they need. Advocacy comes in the form of partnerships, information dissemination and contacting Congress.
Your organization may not have “advocacy” expressly defined in your mission, but you are the experts on the needs of the ovarian cancer community. Our impact is greatest when we work together.
