About The Charity

The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio (OCAO) is an advocate for those affected by ovarian cancer
Our mission is to promote early detection of ovarian cancer with advocacy, education, awareness, and public outreach to improve outcomes and help save lives. We also work to support women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer as well as their family members.

Our vision is to have the best volunteer workforce that embraces our core values and mission. We work with people touched by ovarian cancer to help communicate our mission. Our brand is based on integrity and credibility. Our plan is to grow by welcoming more volunteers for committee positions and organization events. Our fundraising success allows us to meet our strategic plan, vision and mission.

Advocacy, Education, Awareness and Public Outreach

OCAO strives to improve outcomes for the ovarian cancer community by working with policy makers and other ovarian cancer advocates. By building these relationships, we hope to improve the lives of those affected by ovarian cancer.

We believe that the best way to prevent ovarian cancer is to know the symptoms of the disease and what factors put a woman at a higher risk. OCAO places high value on educating women and healthcare providers, which can help save lives until early detection tests are available. We help raise awareness by relaying our message through local campaigns and events, we work to make ovarian cancer and its symptoms known. OCAO identifies the serious nature of ovarian cancer to all women through communication. We utilize mass media outlets to heighten the public’s awareness of our mission. These tools assist with communicating the importance of early detection.

Thank You Sponsors!
