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!



Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States, and the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. Advances in the fight against this terrible disease only occur through medical research focused on finding better methods of diagnosis, more effective treatments, and eventually a cure.

Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the oldest and largest charity in the US funding ovarian cancer research.  Since 1998, OCRF has awarded top scientists at 69 leading medical centers 255 grants for ovarian cancer research and related programs: an investment nearly $70 million.
