National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is listed on the Combined Federal Campaign number 11314 and is a 501©3 tax exempt charitable organization under IRS code.

Description

Welcome to the Northern Virginia Chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC). We promote ovarian cancer education and awareness while supporting survivors and their families throughout Washington, DC, Maryland's Montgomery and Prince George's counties and Northern Virginia communities.

The mission of the NOCC is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors.

Our chapter 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. Our annual events include the 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer(r) in May and "A Taste of Northern Virginia" Golf Tournament and Tasting Reception during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in September.
