OCRA’s Virtual Support Participants Find Real-Life Connection & Community

Participants in OCRA’s virtual support programs came together for a face-to-face meetup in Chicago this weekend, deepening community connections and highlighting the importance of support programs for those with shared experience in facing gynecologic cancer — no matter how far apart they may live.

Co-hosted by OCRA’s Vice President of Support & Education, Tracy Moore, LCSW, and OCRA’s Oncology Social Worker, Sarah Handsman, LCSW, the event gave nearly a dozen participants the opportunity to meet in person for the first time.

“Lots of laughter and joy filled the space,” said Tracy Moore. “OCRA is here for all. These connections are true, even across the miles.”
