Helen Fields started as Executive Director in July of 2014 following a search for support for a family member diagnosed with ovarian cancer. When she discovered the ED position opening, she felt a calling to nonprofit service. It seemed that her background in financial services, sales, telecommunications project management and community service could all be useful. Soon she was managing the operations for this statewide organization, eager to grow and expand its services. Having lost her own mom to breast cancer, Helen had seen how survivor volunteers could give a new patient and her family immediate support and hope for the future. Helen is a South Carolina native, a graduate of Francis Marion University and President of Women’s Ministries at Devenger Road Presbyterian Church. She enjoys the variety in the executive director’s responsibilities, the opportunities to introduce new ideas and working alongside ovarian cancer survivors who inspire her every day!
