The Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition is pleased to be able to offer your group a free informational presentation on ovarian cancer and its signs and symptoms. 95% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer report having had symptoms, yet only 15% of ovarian cancer is diagnosed in the earlier more treatable stages. Remember…earlier diagnosis leads to a better prognosis. Help us spread the word about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer to your group.

Taryn’s “Fight Like A Girl” Scholarship honors our fierce, teal warrior – Taryn Classen. Taryn was just beginning her junior year as a Theater major at the University of Arkansas when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She had a passion for music and theater since she was just a little girl. Sadly, after a long, courageous fight, Taryn passed away in October 2017. This scholarship was created to honor Taryn’s memory and to help increase public awareness of this deadly disease.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded each year. Preference will be given to students who are studying music or theater. The scholarship will be mailed to the recipient’s college after the 11th class day of the fall semester.
