  • The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA) is the foremost advocate for women with Ovarian Cancer in the United States. To advance the interests of women with Ovarian Cancer, the Alliance advocates at a national level for increases in research funding for the development of an early detection test, improved health care practices, and life-saving treatment protocols. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance educates health care professionals and raises public awareness of the risks and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer.


  • The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the largest private philanthropy in the United States dedicated exclusively to funding Ovarian Cancer research. The OCRF’s mission is to fund scientific research that leads to more effective identification, treatment, and ultimately a cure for Ovarian Cancer. Investigators are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for Ovarian Cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why Ovarian Cancer spreads, and how to stop it.


  • The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. As the largest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Cancer Society is passionately committed to saving lives from cancer. The ACS is working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays – a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. Thanks in part to the ACS, nearly 12 million cancer survivors and countless others who have avoided the disease will celebrate a birthday this year.
