Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program

The Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program is committed to prevention, early detection, and health care advocacy to help the women of our community cope with ovarian cancer. Our Mission is to provide resource information and a support network for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, their families, and their friends.

Our program is affiliated with the Oncology Support Program at the Mary’s Ave Campus, member of the HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley.

The Oncology Support Program is situated in the intimate setting of the Herbert H. and Sofia P. Reuner Cancer Support House at 80 Mary’s Ave across from the Mary’s Ave Campus.

The Linda Young Program was founded in loving memory of Linda Young, an extraordinary woman with an insatiable thirst for life. The Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program honors Linda’s life. As a Registered Nurse and a Lamaze instructor, Linda shared the joy of new life with countless parents and dedicated herself to the service of her patients. In her professional career, she always strived for new challenges and approached her own diagnosis of ovarian cancer with the same courage.

Our purpose in creating the Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support program carries forth Linda’s desire to offer accessible resources and information to women whose lives are altered by ovarian cancer. Above all, as Linda herself would have wanted, we wish to educate women so they can advocate effectively for their own health care.

In loving memory of Linda Young, we hope to accomplish our tasks—one woman at a time.
