Be Part of Our Support Team

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) was founded 30 years ago as a grassroots, community-based organization. Over the years, NOCC and our extended community have funded programs for survivors, caregivers and life-changing research, thanks to the dedication of volunteers who make awareness and fundraising events a success. 

Become a volunteer and you’ll join the valiant fight against ovarian cancer and help bring hope to more than 21,000 women diagnosed each year. There are many volunteer opportunities. Your time and generosity helps us fulfill our mission to save lives through the prevention and cure of ovarian cancer and improve the quality of life for survivors and caregivers.
