Our Patient Programs
Ovations for the Cure offers programs which provide support and relief to patients with ovarian cancer. Our patient programs are created to give knowledge, hope and comfort to those women currently diagnosed and living with ovarian cancer. Ovations is proud to provide programs such as Princess Bead & Bracelet, which provides elegant beads to express the journey ovarian cancer patients and survivors have gone through. We also offer free healthy meals through our Helping Hands program. Even from the beginning, we have thought it necessary to create patient programs that help to build disease awareness, bolster patient morale and inspire cause for hope.

The Princess Bead & Bracelet
Since 2006, Ovations for the Cure of Ovarian Cancer has created and participated in various programs to spread ovarian cancer awareness and provide comfort for those currently battling the disease. The Princess Bead & Bracelet program provides patients with an elegant, silver-plated bangle bracelet adorned with a teal blue crystal bead, with sterling silver imprints on each side. Ovarian cancer patients and survivors request your Princess Bead & Bracelet!
This program provides patients currently undergoing active chemotherapy treatment with free healthy and easy to prepare meals. We want to help you push through with our helping hands.
Ovations recognizes that ovarian cancer patients may need a little extra help and guidance while undergoing treatment. One of the ways we can assist patients in need is by providing a healthy, well-balanced diet. And now, thanks to tremendous support from our generous sponsors, we can provide patients in the Massachusetts area with meals—free of charge. These meals are not only healthy, but they're delicious too!
If you are currently in chemotherapy treatment and would like to participate in the Helping Hands program, please click here to complete the application.

Learning for Living Symposium
Initiated by our late founder, Mrs. Patricia Franchi Flaherty, the Learning for Living with Ovarian Cancer Symposium is an annual forum and the first of its kind to educate and update ovarian cancer patients and survivors—at no cost to them—on the latest ovarian cancer research, treatments and therapies.
During the Symposium, held every September, medical experts in the field of gynecological oncology and treatment present the most recent updates and critical information.
Through this interactive, informational program, patients receive the unique opportunity to listen to, learn from, and ask questions of these key doctors on the forefront of gynecological medicine.
