graphic reading, OCRA Action Alert, with OCRA logo

The Ovarian Cancer Research Program (OCRP) is a cutting-edge program housed within the Department of Defense. Despite a history of successful breakthroughs, the program has long been drastically underfunded.

The House and Senate are currently working to determine funding levels for programs in Fiscal Year 2021. Urge your Members of Congress to support full funding for the Ovarian Cancer Research Program (OCRP)!

As you may remember, last year ovarian cancer advocates were successful in increasing funding for OCRP from $20 million to $35 million.This was a huge win, that YOUR voice made possible. The critical boost in funding was long overdue and has allowed cutting-edge research to move forward. 

In order for this progress to continue, Congress must maintain this funding level in final FY2021 appropriations. This is where you come in! 

Please complete this quick form TODAY to urge your Members of Congress in both House and Senate chambers to ensure level funding at $35 million for FY2021 appropriations. It will only take a minute.
