Mission Statement

The mission of the NOCC is to save lives through the prevention and cure of ovarian cancer and to improve quality of life for survivors and their caregivers. Nearly 22,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 14,000 women die from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent. This is why it’s imperative that the early signs and symptoms are recognized not only by women, but by their families and the healthcare community. National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is a 501©3 tax exempt charitable organization under IRS code.


Welcome to the Chesapeake Region of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC). We promote ovarian cancer education and awareness while supporting survivors and their families throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia communities.

Our market is comprised of two volunteer bases - DC/MD and VA. We are made up of ovarian cancer survivors, their families, friends, supporters, and health care professionals. We invite anyone with an interest in raising awareness about ovarian cancer to join our efforts. We participate in health fairs, speaking presentations, and outreach events throughout the year.
