Mission Statement

The mission of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance is to provide support to women and to promote awareness and early detection of ovarian cancer through advocacy and education.

Description

The Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) reaches out to women with ovarian cancer in many ways:

  • Provides support through our Nicki’s Circle Support Groups
  • Offers financial assistance to Colorado women in treatment for ovarian cancer through the COCACares program (one of the only programs of its kind nationwide)
  • "Comfort Kits" that contain resource information and items of comfort are given to women who are newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer

COCA also works to educate:

  • The general population about ovarian cancer symptom and risk factors through health fairs and via its "September Awareness" campaign
  • Medical students about ovarian cancer through Survivors Teaching Students (STS)

COCA's annual "Jodi's Race for Awareness" is a 5K run / 1 mile walk event whose primary goal is to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. The event, which began in 2010, is held each June.

This organization is very impactful, making a difference in women's lives and lives of families that have been impacted by Ovarian Cancer. The folks who set this event up, specifically Jeanene, are genuine and radiate energy and hope. I was a photographer for their Pedal with Polumbus event and it honestly felt like a family reunion, with everyone having fun and chatting/laughing with each other, while also making a difference. I'd recommend the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance to anyone looking to donate their time or money!
