About

For 25 years, the mission of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition has been to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for Survivors.

More than 22,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and over 14,000 women die from the disease. There is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer. The Pap test does not detect ovarian cancer. Until there is a screening test, the key to early diagnosis is awareness.

Through national programs and local NOCC initiatives, the NOCC's goal is to educate communities and increase awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. The NOCC also provides information to assist newly-diagnosed patients, hope to Survivors, and support to caregivers. The NOCC is also committed to the advancement of ovarian cancer research.

Our programs are possible only with the help of our staff and volunteers from communities nationwide. Please join us so that we can make a difference in the lives of women, families and communities touched by ovarian cancer.
