Who we are | Behind the scenes
EyesOnThePrize.org was founded by ten gynecologic cancer survivors from the USA and Canada who met through an Internet support group and shared a common commitment. A profound fellowship, which developed during powerful moments of sharing our own experiences with diagnosis, treatment, and side-effects, fueled our desire to create this safe and supportive place for other women and provide the information for which we searched in vain. We knew that by uniting to include all gynecologic cancers, our voices would be heard louder and stronger, and from this, our unique community was born.
We knew that women needed the answers to even their most intimate questions. We knew the power of having the best information when we had the hardest decisions to make. We knew the comfort of hearing "I understand, I've been there." We felt our very womanhood threatened and violated by disease and its treatments. We knew that thousands of women were suffering in silence because of being diagnosed with a cancer that hits "below the belt."
Since EyesOnThePrize.org launched on Mother's Day 2000, we have suffered loss, but others have shared our vision and rallied to help advance our cause. EyesOnThePrize.org grows steadily through the talent and goodwill of survivors like us and others who are good enough to care about us.
