We serve women throughout NW Ohio & SE Michigan.  

Awareness, Education and Support

The OCC has been raising awareness about ovarian and other gynecological cancers across NW Ohio and SE Michigan for over 15 years. For the women and families effected by these cancers, we provide resources, education, and financial support.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our funds raised stay here locally to support our mission.

I am a 20-year ovarian cancer survivor myself and, they are great at reaching out and supporting survivors and those who are going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. OCC provides gas cards to help with transportation to doctor appointments. They are great.

The Ovarian Cancer Connection is a great organization. The volunteers are amazing and very helpful. They are raising awareness about ovarian cancer and other gynecological cancers. Turning the Towns Teal is an example of an opportunity for volunteers to spread ovarian cancer awareness.

The OCC is a great nonprofit in our area, and they have worked very hard every year to raise awareness and funds to help local women during a very difficult time in their lives. I enjoy my time volunteering at the annual Ellen Jackson Ovarian Cancer Walk. Every year there are more people than the previous year.

OCC is such a wonderful organization! When in town, I love doing the Ellen Jackson Ovarian Cancer Walk in memory of a dear friend and mother who passed way too soon but left such a beautiful legacy! I always share OCC’s posts. It’s so important! Thank you for all you do!
