- About NOCC
Please help me support National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by making a contribution. Every dollar I raise will advance NOCC's mission to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for Survivors.
Did you know?
...ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women between the ages of 35-74
...1 in 78 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer during their lifetimes
...about 22,240 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer in 2020
There is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer. The Pap test does not detect ovarian cancer. Until there is a screening test, the key to early diagnosis is awareness. It is imperative that the early signs and symptoms of the disease are recognized, not only by women, but by their families and the healthcare community.
Through national programs and local NOCC chapter initiatives, the NOCC's goal is to educate communities and increase awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. The NOCC also provides information to assist newly-diagnosed patients, hope to Survivors, and support to caregivers. The NOCC is also committed to the advancement of ovarian cancer research.
