OCRF & Ovarian Cancer National Alliance are now one strong, united, inspiring voice!
Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) and the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA) have led the way in advocacy, research and support for patients and their families for over 22 years. As of January 2016, we are pleased to announce we are joining together to form Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA), the largest global organization dedicated to advancing ovarian cancer research while supporting women and their families. Read the exciting news!


Plan An Event Or Fundraiser for OCRFA

Runs, walks, dinners and dances—these are just some of the ways our dedicated supporters throughout the country are raising awareness and helping fund the science to beat ovarian cancer. They are men, women, and children of all ages, but they share one thing in common: they have been affected by ovarian cancer, and they want to do something about it. Now you too can join us in the fight to change the future of ovarian cancer, as an official member of Team Hope!

About Team Hope

Whether you have an idea for an event, or simply want to raise awareness and funds for the cause, your special Team Hope page will help you get there. Registration is simple. And once you sign up, you will receive your own custom fundraising page, which you can personalize with photos and videos, and you’ll have all of the space you’ll need to tell your story or provide details of your event. Once it’s ready to go, you can share with your friends, family, and loved ones through social media and email, using the easy sharing tools you receive when you create your page.
