Mission Statement

Ovations for the Cure of Ovarian Cancer, Inc. is dedicated to the relentless pursuit of a cure for ovarian cancer in three critical ways. First, we provide critical funding of new and ongoing ovarian cancer research and treatment initiatives. Second, the organization actively increases the awareness of the subtle signs and symptoms of this silent disease. Third, we give hope, education and comfort to those currently battling ovarian cancer through our patient programs.

Description

Ovations takes public education of ovarian cancer seriously. Their most successful effort is the Patient Awareness Program - the creation and distribution of Why Knowledge is Power brochures to more than 3,000 physicians' offices, hospitals and treatment clinics in more than 26 states. Ovations also participates in September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month by developing public service announcements for television and radio and launching a national campaign including billboards, informational newsletters and donation boxes at reputable locations.

Most importantly, Ovations is committed to ongoing patient information and morale-boosting initiatives. Ovations provides patients with the latest information and research on ovarian cancer at the annual Learning for Living with Ovarian Cancer Symposium--a free conference open to cancer patients. Another notable initiative is the Happy Feet program - where Ovations provides an exclusively designed pair of Stuart Weitzman slip-ons to ovarian cancer patients undergoing treatment. This program alone has touched the lives of over 1,300 women and undoubtedly made their journey through treatment more comfortable.

take your stand today

As long as ovarian cancer takes a quiet approach, our research and awareness efforts must refuse to do the same. That is why your support is crucial--not just because our goals are great, but because the need for a cure is even greater. In so many ways, your commitment can translate into hope for the thousands upon thousands of women who will face ovarian cancer. By your acts of giving, we will save lives.
