About Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance

Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) is the oldest and largest ovarian cancer charity in the world. Incorporated in 1994, OCRA has invested more than $110 million in cutting-edge research in our quest to end ovarian cancer. As the largest private funder of ovarian cancer research, OCRA is also the only ovarian cancer-dedicated voice on Capitol Hill continuously advocating for hundreds of millions of dollars in federal research funding provided by the National Cancer Institute and Department of Defense, as well as for related health policies that will benefit patients and survivors.

OCRA believes in a 360 degree approach in our efforts to eradicate ovarian cancer, so in addition to our research and advocacy, we also educate healthcare providers to ensure the earliest diagnosis possible through Survivors Teaching Students®; support patients with a peer-matching program in hospitals and online (Woman to Woman); convene the oldest and largest annual Ovarian Cancer National Conference; train interested individuals to become effective advocates at both the state and federal level through the Advocate Leaders program; and unite grassroots ovarian cancer organizations through membership in our Community Partners.
