EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITY OVER THE YEARS WE’VE COME TOGETHER, A UNITED VOICE AGAINST OVARIAN CANCER. The impact of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is all about you. It is your commitment to the cause and support of NOCC programs and initiatives that empower and care for the community. Together we will continue to fight the battle against ovarian cancer, and eventually, we will win. Thanks to you, NOCC is the largest, full-service ovarian organization of its kind in the world. With the strength and scope of offices, chapters, volunteers, and ambassadors in cities and towns nationwide, we stand ready to support you and your loved ones, when we are needed.
