Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA) is the largest global organization dedicated to advancing ovarian cancer research while supporting women and their families. As the voice for ovarian cancer, OCRFA funds private research, advocates for increased federal research and awareness dollars and furthers policies that give women access to the services they need, as well as supports women and their families before, during and after a diagnosis. OCRFA engages the survivor community with programs like Woman to Woman, pairing gynecologic cancer patients with gynecologic cancer survivors and Survivors Teaching Students®: Saving Women’s Lives, an educational program connecting ovarian cancer survivors with health professional students to present their unique stories and facts about the disease.
