As the largest charity in the world dedicated to defeating ovarian cancer, OCRA is on the cutting edge of scientific innovation. We’re here for patients and families as they face the everyday challenges that accompany a life-altering diagnosis, and we lead the charge in advocating for legislative policies that help the ovarian cancer community.
Yet, none of this is possible without you — our passionate community who share our commitment to creating a better world for those touched by this disease.
This September, we’re asking you to help make a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer. Now is the time to shine a spotlight on the number one cause of gynecologic cancer deaths — a cancer that will see more than 22,000 new diagnoses this year alone.
We can ALL do our part in helping find a cure. So please — be a hero, be a voice.

Every dollar counts when it comes to scientific discovery, and September is a critical time for generating support. Whether you make a donation toward our goal, or start your own fundraising campaign (it sounds like a lot, but it’s simple!), you’re funding much-needed progress.
- Right now, more than 230,000 patients and their families across the country are living in the shadow of this disease — and they’re counting on us. OCRA is committing to raise $300,000 by September 30th. Make your Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month donation today, and help fund the next discovery
