The Journey Begins

Everything changes when you or a loved one is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Emotions are high. Your world feels out of control, filled with medical tests, surgical procedures, treatments and unfamiliar terms. It’s a scary, overwhelming time, but one thing is for sure. You are not alone.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or the disease has recurred, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is here for you every step of the way, including online support groups and events. Many of us are ovarian cancer survivors. All of us are here to answer your questions and offer compassion and encouragement whenever it’s needed. Many women with ovarian cancer gradually adjust and enjoy full and rewarding lives. NOCC can help get you there, too.
