New Diagnosis

The Journey Begins

Receiving a diagnosis of ovarian cancer from your doctor is just the beginning of a very personal and unique journey for you and your loved ones. This path can be scary at times, and will likely present a variety of emotional and physical challenges.

One thing you should know is that you do not need to walk this path alone.

The South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation (SCOCF) is here to support you and your family throughout the course of your disease. Many of us have walked the same path. We are here to provide you with information, compassion, and encouragement.

After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you probably will feel uncertain and have many questions about the disease. How will it affect my body and my life? What's the best plan of action to manage the disease? What treatment side effects will I experience?

Please contact us if you have been recently diagnosed. Call  864-373-6306 or email scocfdirector@gmail.com

SCOCF can provide a Bag of Hope to help newly diagnosed patients in South Carolina. Please see our page on Bags of Hope and contact us to get one.
