National Ovarian Cancer Coalition

The mission of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for survivors. We do this within the scope of our four pillars: earlier awareness, community outreach, research, and quality of life. This means attending health fairs and speaking engagements where we distribute hundreds of thousands of educational resources that heighten awareness. We know that by mobilizing our communities, no one fights alone so we host our signature run/walk, Together in Teal to End Ovarian Cancer, in eighteen communities around the country. We have made a multi-year, multi-million-dollar investment in the Ovarian Cancer Dream Team of Stand Up To Cancer. And we support women living with ovarian cancer through our Faces of Hope tote program; Cancer Connect - a HIPPA complaint online physician moderated forum for survivors and their caregivers; local retreats and support groups; and our biennial Teal Summit which brings together survivors, caregivers, and experts in the field from all over the nation.
