Board of Directors

Alesa Garner, New Outlook Cancer Recovery Program Manager St. Vincent Health System.  Alesa is one of the founding members of AROVCC.  Her passion for this organization stems from a sister who overcame ovarian cancer.  Alesa has been involved with education efforts for AROVCC.


Leah Elliott, Vice Chairman

After being misdiagnosed for months, Leah Elliott learned she had what is known as the “silent killer” in April 2006.  At the time she knew nothing about ovarian cancer, but quickly learned more often than not there is a late diagnosis.  She joined others who shared her passion in educating anyone and everyone on the signs and symptoms of this disease and became a founding board member of the AROVCC.  Her two daughters, Emma and Arden, have joined in her efforts and volunteer with the organization as well. Leah became a survivor the day she was diagnosed. It is a title she proudly bears behind her name.

Amy, her husband and daughter reside in central Arkansas.
