A Letter From the Executive Director

Dear Friends of GYN Cancers Alliance,

Family, friends and faith are the heart of a positive life. It was the need for positive encouragement that led Joy Lamberson-Klock to create GYN Cancers Alliance (GYNCA), as she battled her own ovarian cancer diagnosis. Her vision was to bring comfort and support to the lives of other women facing gynecologic cancer. GYNCA’s survivor-to-survivor mentoring, support group, awareness activities and emergency non-medical financial assistance continue to help hundreds of women throughout Southwest Mission. 100% of all donated funds remain local. Be a part of the annual Circle of JOY and discover the personal reward of supporting the women in our community who are fighting for their lives.

Throughout the pandemic, GYN Cancers Alliance continues to make a significant difference in the lives of women and families impacted by gynecologic cancers, and we have our GYNCA friends and donors to thank for this! Here’s a snapshot of how your dollars helped families battling gynecologic cancers with emergency financial needs from January 2021 through November 20:
