Mission Statement

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

Description

Since its inception in 1995, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) has been committed to raising awareness, promoting education, and funding research in support of women, families, and communities touched by ovarian cancer. NOCC is well-established as an important national advocate for patients and families struggling with ovarian cancer. NOCC remains steadfast in its mission to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors.

NOCC Programs

A. Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer: Signature Events Raising Awareness of Ovarian Cancer, Honoring Survivors, and Paying Tribute to Those Lost.

B. Faces of Hope: Survivor Support Program for Women with Ovarian Cancer, Their Families, Friends and Loved Ones.

C. Take Early Action and Live: Education and Awareness Programs Emphasizing Symptom Recognition

We support 24 chapters across the nation, and look to include more communities in our mission. In addition to local awareness events, ovarian cancer survivor gatherings, and other fundraisers, we host 19 Run/Walk events per year. While September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and our peak need for volunteers, we seek volunteers for our initiatives year-round.

In 2015 the Iowa Chapter will once again be holding their two major events along with many other events to spread awareness. The tow big events include 8th Annual 5k Run/Walk and their 10th Annual Ovarian Cancer Conference at Mercy. Smaller events are health fairs, Senior fairs, parades, speaking events, etc.

Best Regards,

The NOCC Iowa Team
