About us

Let Every Woman Know – Alaska is a nonprofit run by volunteers, one dedicated staff member and a small board of directors, many of whom have been touched by gynecologic cancers. Survivors, family members and friends; physicians and medical professionals; cancer support professionals and compassionate community members are all part of the Let Every Woman Know – Alaska team.


Alaskans are educated, empowered and supported in preventing, facing and ending gynecologic cancers.


Let Every Woman Know – Alaska provides creative statewide education, support, advocacy and arts programs unique to Alaska’s diverse communities and is dedicated to preventing, facing and ending gynecologic cancers.

Due to the rising concerns around COVID-19 and calls for social distancing, Let Every Woman Know-Alaska has decided to move our biweekly support group meetings and the EXTRA-TOUGHS Anchorage and Valley Programs to a virtual platform. Please call our office at (907) 263-1009 for further information. Let Every Woman Know-Alaska remains committed to providing support services and resources for women with GYN cancers throughout Alaska. We will keep our community updated as we continue to monitor reports from CDC, WHO, Alaska Department of Health and Anchorage Health Department.
