How you can help|Giving and serving

The mission of EyesOnThePrize.org, a nonprofit corporation, is to provide information and emotional support from the survivors' perspective to women with gynecologic cancers, their families and friends, and healthcare providers.

You can help in many ways - and any way furthers our community's determination to bring hope and awareness to women suffering with cancers that "hit below the belt."

Link to us

 If you run a Web site visited by women looking for healthcare information, link to EyesOnThePrize.org. If your link helps just one women find support during her terrifying, lonely journey with cancer, it will be worth the effort. Since how you link matters search engines, we have made up a page of pre-crafted links designed for easy searching.

 Spread the word! You can print EyesOnThePrize.Org Waiting Room posters and pocket cards from our Advocacy Tools section. Give them to your medical care providers and tell them about your involvement in a place of loving support for women suffering gynecologic cancers.

 Help build "In Your Community," a growing database of on-the-ground gynecologic cancer support groups around the world. Contact support groups in your community and tell them about "In Your Community".

 Add your story to the "Our Stories" section of the EyesOnThePrize.Org web site. Hundreds of women and the people who care for them visit our site every day seeking solace and information. Personal stories by survivors and family members speak to them in powerful ways. Katie, our story editor at stories@eyesontheprize.org will gently help you with the process. Please consider adding your story. You will provide a wonderful gift to women and the families and friends who love them.

 Contribute to our "Frequently Asked Questions" section. Every woman newly diagnosed or surviving gynecologic cancers needs help in deciphering things like a pathology report or the specifics of after-care. So do family and friends who are caring for and about them. Please consider adding your perspective to topics ranging from chemo to nutritional supplements, sexuality after gynecologic cancer to brachytherapy, after surgery to end-of-life care-giving. Visit our FAQs section and pick a topic you'd like to contribute to, then send your answer to faq@eyesontheprize.org. We need your perspective!
