The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Inc., (NOCC) is a national, non-profit, support organization dedicated to raising awareness and promoting education about ovarian cancer. The coalition is committed to improving the overall quality of life for individuals with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells are found in the ovary. An ovary is one of two small, almond-shaped organs located on each side of the uterus that produce female hormones and store eggs or germ cells. NOCC's other goals include advocating for improved early detection methods to periodically screen women of all ages; taking an aggressive approach to the funding of research into ovarian cancer; and establishing a national clearinghouse to ensure the dissemination of accurate and comprehensive information on ovarian cancer.
