In America, What's That?

Ovarian Cancer In America: What's That?

The Ovarian Cancer In America survey is now closed.

Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer in the United States, and anyone with ovaries can develop ovarian cancer.1 Regardless, it can be hard to know what to expect after an ovarian cancer diagnosis. To learn more about the challenges of ovarian cancer, and to give a voice to those survivors, we are conducting our Ovarian Cancer In America survey.

What is the survey about?

The survey covers “basics” like your diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact and the day-to-day challenges of managing ovarian cancer. We hope to learn more about all things ovarian cancer, including complementary and alternative treatments, diet and nutrition, symptoms, and quality of life.

Why should you take the survey?

Each person who takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of ovarian cancer and helps raise awareness. With better knowledge, we can help others who are dealing with ovarian cancer feel less alone. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal the similarities, and differences, between each person’s journey, and can bring greater awareness to this condition that affected more than 21,410 women in 2021.1

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about nearly everything related to your journey with ovarian cancer, including:

  • Diagnosis
  • Symptoms and symptom management
  • Quality of life and relationships
  • Your experience with your doctor and other members of the healthcare team
  • Treatment awareness and experience

We do not require your name, address, or other personal information for you to participate. You also do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You may continue where you left off.

How do we use the In America survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the ovarian cancer community. All survey responses remain confidential, reported only in total. This means your specific responses will not be reported individually. All information will become property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Community Team at AdvancedOvarianCancer.net takes your responses and creates an infographic. This will share the community's responses, and highlight important findings from the survey. You can read last year's Ovarian Cancer In America infographic in A Glimpse into Life with Ovarian Cancer.

But that is not all. Throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on what we learned from the survey. We hope this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by ovarian cancer and helps you all connect with others who walk the same path.

One voice may seem like it will not make a difference, but we believe each voice can change how others perceive life with ovarian cancer, and bring comfort to someone coping with a diagnosis.
