For the past 31 years, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) has been committed to raising awareness, promoting education, and funding local programs and initiatives as well as national 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 through the prevention and cure of ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for survivors and their caregivers.
NOCC envisions a future where no woman ever loses her life to ovarian cancer.
The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is a nationally recognized organization with a growing coast-to-coast network of regions and markets. Our efforts are fueled by volunteers, survivors, and legacy families. Together, we empower our communities through educational efforts and outreach initiatives. We embrace our legacy families as the voice of the voiceless, and advocate for survivors and caregivers by providing comfort and support through our programs and services. Our programs are as follows:
