Founded in March 2008 by a handful of gynecologic cancer survivors, Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support Inc.’s primary goal is to offer a forum for sharing experiences, knowledge and assistance to women who face the unique challenges of these types of cancers.
Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support Inc. exists to help Central Kentucky women and their loved ones during diagnosis, treatment and survival of ovarian and other gynecologic cancers, and works to promote public awareness and education of these cancers.
Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support, Inc. donates annually to the UK Markey Center, the Baptist Health Foundation, and the UK Ovarian Cancer Screening program. The BOCS Board is run by dedicated volunteers. We provide “care bags,” with a BOCS brochure, and some goodies, to the GYN oncology offices at the UK Markey Center and the Baptist Health Cancer Center to be distributed to those newly diagnosed with ovarian or other gynecologic cancers. We sponsor attendance for several of those in treatment or survivors to OCRA’s Ovarian Cancer National Conference. Annually, we celebrate survivors and those in treatment with a luncheon and door prizes.
