Ovarian Cancer 101 was launched in 2010 after Founder, Diane Riche lost her mother just 5 weeks after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. It was then that Diane realized how little women, and even healthcare providers knew about ovarian cancer. So Ovarian Cancer 101 set out with the mission to change that with ovarian cancer educational programs.
Through the process of conducting our programs, working with hundreds of patients and serving on the Massachusetts Ovarian Cancer Special Commission it was realized just how many needs exist for women facing gynecologic cancer that go unmet. Our history has evolved be inclusive to the entire gynecologic cancer community and meet many of those needs. On January 1, 2022 we changed our name to Below The Belt Women's Cancer Outreach to better reflect our mission.
