Nine Girls Ask? for a cure for ovarian cancer is composed of extremely talented, dedicated volunteers including many courageous survivors. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the unification of women to eradicate this “not so silent” disease. No one associated with NGA accepts monetary payment in any form. We feel it is so important to assure that all funds raised go directly to research and hopefully a test for early detection.
When our founder Joan Wyllie was diagnosed, she instantly became aware of the fact there was no other women to turn to for support or advice regarding “what to expect”! We were formed purely to help other women while experiencing their journey with ovarian cancer. In a very short time fund raising became very important to NGA as the need was evident.
Once Nine Girls Ask? for a cure for Ovarian Cancer was formed, we had no problem finding women who were very excited to help us. Our volunteers include friends, relatives and other survivors. These women work so hard and pour their hearts into growing Nine Girls Ask and reaching out to other women. We realize the importance of being able to pick up the phone and talk to another woman who have experienced this journey before them. They become very dear friends and sisters.All members of NGA are very attached and protective of each other and the women that join us. We feel together we will make a difference!
