Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance is dedicated to fostering an environment that provides the best possible healthcare and support for those with ovarian cancer and those who could be at risk.
As the only national organization dedicated to fighting for ovarian cancer issues on Capitol Hill, we take our duty to protect the patient community very seriously. From working to enhance the public investment in ovarian cancer research and education, to ensuring that patients are protected with adequate safety regulations and coverage, OCRA works to always represent our patient community.
But we can’t do this important work without people like you! Here are a few ways you can help amplify your voice and help ovarian cancer patients everywhere:

Action Alert: Help Ensure Patients Can Afford Life-Saving Therapies
U.S. Representatives Donald McEachin (D-VA) and Rodney Davis (R-IL) have introduced H.R. 5801, the Help Ensure Lower Patient (HELP) Copays Act to protect patients from increased out-of-pocket prescription drug costs. This legislation is critically important, but it won’t pass without your help. Take action now.
Join us for virtual Advocacy Day.
Our elected officials need to hear from us to ensure that ovarian cancer research and education programs remain a congressional priority. On Advocacy Day, we bring together patients, survivors, caregivers and supporters to advocate virtually for programs and research that pave the way for better treatments for ovarian cancer.

OCRA is honored to receive the 5th Annual Gabriella Graham Patient Advocacy Award from the Society of Surgical Oncology. This award is presented annually to an individual or patient advocacy organization that has provided support and hope to patients and families facing cancers that are often treated with a regional treatment approach, such as intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
