Coping with a New Diagnosis

Being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is an upsetting and overwhelming experience. Very often after diagnosis, women feel very alone. We’re here to help you.

The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation works to offer support to ovarian cancer survivors and their families; educates the public about ovarian cancer; and raises funds to advance ovarian cancer research.

You do not have to take this journey alone. We have many resources to help you navigate your way. As you face many decisions and emotions along this roller coaster ride, we believe that knowledge is power.

With a Little Help From Her Friends Support Program

With a Little Help From Her Friends

No one should have to go through the process of ovarian cancer treatment alone and SROCF is striving to eliminate that possibility through the With a Little Help From Her Friends support program. The purpose of our Patient Support Program is to make the stress of dealing with ovarian cancer treatment less confusing and solitary by providing consistent first-line peer level contact. Expertly trained With a Little Help From Her Friends Mentors will provide those recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer a peer contact that can:

  • Find available social resources;
  • Provide a toolkit and offer support that only a peer can;
  • Offer suggestions on the best way to communicate questions and information to their physicians and other healthcare providers; and
  • Lend much needed emotional support

The goal of the With a Little Help From Her Friends Support Program is to ensure that every ovarian cancer patient gets the support they need and deserve.

If you are a patient in need of a peer mentor or would like to participate in the With a Little Help From Her Friends Support Program as a mentor, please contact us at
