MOCA YOUNG SURVIVOR NETWORK

We define young survivors as those women dealing with a gynecologic cancer diagnosis before menopause. We invite you to join the group to explore issues unique to young survivors of all types of gynecologic cancers. Young survivors range in age from late teens to mid-40s, but there is no age requirement to join the group!

The YSN plans events and activities throughout the year. MOCA also has a network of YSN Mentors who can provide support and information over the phone. Young survivors of ovarian and gynecologic cancers can also connect online through a private Facebook group.

For more information, contact Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany by email at sgliniany@mnovarian.org or call her at 612-584-3550.
