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 Alliance is the oldest and largest charity in the US funding ovarian cancer research. Since 1998, OCRFA has awarded top scientists at 70 leading medical centers 255 grants for ovarian cancer research and related programs: an investment of over $75 million.
