Nicki's Circle Information and Support Groups

If you have received a diagnosis of ovarian cancer and would like to meet other women with that experience, please feel free to join one or more Nicki's Circle Ovarian Cancer Information and Support Groups, sponsored by COCA. At this time, Nicki's Circle is meeting six times monthly: in person at Denver Central, Lone Tree, Boulder, and Ft. Collins, and by phone in Pueblo and statewide.  See options below.


Nicki's Circle Ovarian Cancer Information & Support Groups have served hundreds of women monthly in Colorado since 2005.

The groups are open to anyone who has battled this disease and to their caregivers. At meetings, information is exchanged about ovarian cancer, current medical research, and how women can effectively advocate for obtaining the best health care possible.

This is also a place to share the emotional ups and downs of living with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer.

The telephone groups are designed especially for those who cannot make it to a support group in person or who live outside the Denver area.

All groups are free of charge and are facilitated by a healthcare professional.
