About the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC)

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness, promoting education, and supporting ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers across the country. Since 1991, we have been educating communities like yours from coast to coast about ovarian cancer and supporting survivors and caregivers of ovarian cancer. Knowledge is power; join our nationwide movement today.

Embracing Progress: A 360-Degree Approach to Ovarian Cancer Care

For more than 31 years, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) has been at the forefront of ovarian cancer advocacy, providing critical support and resources to those affected by this devastating disease. With a regional approach covering the entire United States, we strive to ensure that anyone diagnosed with ovarian cancer has the programs, tools, and resources to survive and thrive. We are here for survivors and caregivers, reducing barriers to care and providing support regardless of their status or other identities.

Ovarian cancer as a disease may know no bounds, but credible disease information, programs, and resources do. Patients report difficulties in finding understandable information, and many experience significant barriers to diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life with an ovarian cancer diagnosis. The stress and anxiety related to these disparities can lead to poor health outcomes, and with nearly 80% of patients diagnosed in later stages due to a lack of an effective early detection test, more needs to be done to reduce barriers to care.

Equality in access to care forms the bedrock of our philosophy at NOCC. These endeavors harness the power of community health principles, foster collaboration with patients and advocates, and strengthen partnerships with sister organizations. Our aim is clear – to weave an unbreakable network of support, delivering a 360-degree approach to patient care. We aspire to ensure that the needs of our community are not just met today but for generations yet to come.
