WOMEN SURVIVORS ALLIANCE

Our Mission is to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their new normal.

If cancer was cured tomorrow, 1.5 million women would be spared a diagnosis this year alone. But the 8 million women survivors in America will continue to face issues they never expected once their treatment ended. These long-term and life limiting effects of the illness and its treatments include physical, psychosocial, legal and financial issues. And the big one – fear of reoccurrence. Learning to navigate the muddy waters of their new normal is the only way survivors can return to being contributing members of their families and society as a whole. Survivorship, and the recognition of the many challenges survivors face following treatment, is the cutting-edge theme in the world of cancer.

This 501(c)3 organization created BY women survivors FOR women survivors of ALL cancers provides Three Ribbons of Support:

SURVIVORville (www.SURVIVORville.org) an annual event bringing together women survivors of all ages, all stages and all cancers for education, motivation and life application.

NOU Magazine (www.NOUmagazine.org) an online magazine and comprehensive resource with articles on nutrition, exercise, finances, sexuality, health, a book club, a directory of cancer and survivorship organizations across the internet, and more.

My 2nd Act: Giving Survivorship a Voice (www.Survivors2ndAct.org) We encourage women to tell their stories – either written or read before an audience – of how they’re using their gifts of time and experience to give back to society for the greater good.
