12th Annual Ellen Jackson Ovarian Cancer Walk Presented by Buckeye CableSystem Saturday, September 17, 2016

The Ovarian Cancer Connection is pleased to announce that we have received a generous grant from the Toledo Community Oncology Program.  This grant will allow the OCC to continue providing financial assistance to women going through treatment for ovarian cancer. The OCC would like to thank the Toledo Community Oncology Program for their support!




The OCC would like to thank all who braved the inclement weather at the 11th annual Ellen Jackson Ovarian Cancer Walk on September 19th at The Eleanor Dana Cancer Center on the campus of UTMC. This is our biggest fundraiser that allows the OCC to continue to provide support, education and financial assistance to women fighting this disease and it was once again a huge success! There were gift basket raffles, 50/50 raffle, live auction, a crazy costume contest and entertainment in addition to the wonderful environment of love and support!! We loved seeing the sea of teal as well as our beautiful survivors in coral shirts they helped design!


Please watch and share Tiffany Johnson’s Ovarian Cancer story! While on YouTube visit ovarian cancer connection channel and watch our other videos!
