Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF)

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund was founded to fund research in order to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. In support of their mission, they help patients and their loved ones understand the disease and its treatment, and provide outreach programs to raise public awareness.

OCRF and L’Oréal Paris have teamed up with CancerCare (a national nonprofit which provides free counseling and education services to survivors and families affected by cancer) to launch a “Hope Line” for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Women with ovarian cancer can now find immediate assistance to better cope with their diagnosis by calling 877-OV-HOPE-1 (877-684-6731).

This service is free and the lines are staffed with oncology social workers.

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC)
