In January 2016, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance joined together to form Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA). OCRFA is the largest global organization dedicated to advancing ovarian cancer research while supporting women and their families. As the voice for ovarian cancer, OCRFA funds private research, advocates for increased federal research and awareness dollars and furthers policies that give women access to the services they need, as well as supports women and their families before, during and after a diagnosis. Collectively, the organization has invested over $70 million in private ovarian cancer research and has advocated to secure over $2.2 billion federal dollars dedicated to ovarian cancer research and awareness since 1998. OCRFA engages the survivor community with programs like Woman to Woman, pairing gynecologic cancer patients with gynecologic cancer survivors, and Survivors Teaching Students®: Saving Women’s Lives, an educational program connecting ovarian cancer survivors with health professional students to present their unique stories and facts about the disease.
