Annual Celebration Luncheon
Each year in the fall, Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support, Inc. holds a luncheon to celebrate survivors and those in treatment. In 2023, BOCS held the annual luncheon on September 24th, during #OvarianCancerAwarenessMonth, at Origin Hotel. We hosted 18 survivors or individuals in treatment and each received a gift bag. We also had door prizes and awards.
