Our Local Chapter

Sample Event


Join us on sample date

The NOCC Long Island Chapter invites you to participate in the 13th Annual Run/Walk. 

The Long Island Chapter has served the communities of Nassau and Suffolk Counties since 2006.  The chapter is comprised of ovarian cancer survivors, supporters, and health care professionals committed to raising awareness, promoting education, and raising funds for ovarian cancer research.

Each member is dedicated to improving survival rates, as well as improving the quality of life for women affected by ovarian cancer.

Our Run/Walk is a special event which allows us the opportunity to celebrate the strength and resilience of survivors as well as pay tribute to those who have lost their lives.   

There are so many stories to tell, please take a moment and read the compelling story of Donna and her boys…her husband Vinny and her twins.   This family has carried more than their share of burden that this disease brings.  Why is the Run/Walk important to her http://ovarian.org/component/content/article/33-latest-nocc-updates/538-together-in-teal-this-is-us-

At the Run/Walk my sons witnessed families, moms, dads, boys and girls, going through “stuff.” They saw love, warmth, acts of kindness, giving and caring.  They knew they were not alone.  Although our family continues to live with the impact of ongoing treatments, which is challenging, lonely, confusing and difficult, my boys know they are not alone.“

We continue our focus on our survivors, who need to know they are not alone, their struggle is our struggle. With the continued support of our community we can grow as a chapter and embrace more women through our quality of life initiatives to provide comfort and hope. In 2019 we have expanded our Teal Hearts Network program from monthly peer-to-peer meetings, survivors mentoring other survivors, to now include a pilot program for warm meals and house cleaning.

We are grateful for your outpouring of support!
