Our Story

Since our inception in 2005, we have been committed to raising awareness about ovarian cancer across NW Ohio and SE Michigan. The OCC provides education and financial support for women with ovarian cancer.

We established ourselves as an important local advocate for patients and families struggling with ovarian cancer. Committed volunteers worked together to build a strong voice for ovarian cancer awareness.

Seeing the need to support ovarian cancer survivors and keeping 100% of the money raised right here locally. Today, we are honor to collaborate with our the local gynecologic oncologists and most recently Mercy Health, together we are working to conquer ovarian and other gynecological cancers throughout NW Ohio and SE Michigan.
