Stand Up for Madeline & OCRA: (2020 Event Cancelled)

An evening of laugh-out-loud stand up performances, a raucous live auction, and cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, all to benefit OCRA in memory of the legendary Madeline Kahn. Stand Up for Madeline and OCRA has been cancelled this year, in accordance with public health policies surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to sharing a much-needed evening of laughter and philanthropy with you in 2021.

Virtual Spring Advocacy Day: March 8-9, 2021

Each spring, survivors and caregivers rally in Washington, DC to advocate for the programs and research that pave the way for better treatments for ovarian cancer, and to ensure that ovarian cancer research and education programs remain a congressional priority. This year we went virtual, and reached more legislators than ever before. Take a look back!
