Ovarian Cancer National Alliance

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is the foremost advocate for women with ovarian cancer in the United States. To advance the interests of women with ovarian cancer, the organization advocates at a national level for increases in research funding for the development of an early detection test, improved health care practices, and life-saving treatment protocols. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance educates health care professionals and raises public awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is a 501 (c) (3) organization established in 1997.

Why it’s in the Showcase: Since its launch, the site has connected thousands of ovarian cancer survivors and loved ones through an ongoing conversation the site has initiated about ovarian cancer. The site not only showcases the work the Alliance does to save women’s lives, but also connects those women and gives them hope. They are able to reach thousands of women by sharing their personal story, catch up on the latest science, and encourage their representatives to push legislation pertaining to cancer research funding through and work on their behalf.
