Description

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is a nationally recognized organization with a growing coast-to-coast network of regions and markets. Our efforts are fueled by volunteers, survivors, and legacy families. Together, we empower our communities through educational efforts and outreach initiatives. We embrace our legacy families as the voice of the voiceless, and advocate for survivors and caregivers by providing comfort and support through our programs and services. Our programs are as follows:

FacesofHopeToteBag: Faces of Hope tote bags are provided to newly diagnosed women and women diagnosed "recurrent" and are filled with educational resources and comfort items to assist the survivor and her family while navigating a diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
