Like most women, Sayla didn’t know about ovarian cancer until she was diagnosed. Though she had symptoms, including frequent urination, fatigue, bloating and abdominal pain, she assumed her annual gynecologic exam was enough to screen for all gynecologic cancers. After her surprise diagnosis, she was driven to raise awareness of the disease that caught her so off guard, and to advocate for more research. She discovered OCRA, who taught her how to get her voice heard on Capitol Hill. There, she helped secure major increases in government funding to fight ovarian cancer. With OCRA, Sayla is helping ensure future generations will never hear “You have ovarian cancer.”
