NOCC ROCK LEGENDS are dedicated to Raising Ovarian Cancer Knowledge and supporting women and families battling this disease!!
More than 22,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, each year and over 14,000 women die from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent. That is why the early signs and symptoms of the disease must be recognized, not only by women but by their families and the healthcare community.
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. The key to awareness is knowing the subtle symptoms of ovarian cancer and urging women to Take Early Action and Live®.
With your gift and participation, NOCC will fund national programs and local NOCC chapter initiatives that educate communities and increase awareness about ovarian cancer symptoms, provide resources to assist patients, hope to Survivors, and support to caregivers.
