Ovarian Cancer Connection Named ‘2017 Top-Rated Non-Profit’ by GreatNonProfits.org
Toledo, Ohio August 16, 2017 – Ovarian Cancer Connection announced today it has been named a “2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.
Ovarian Cancer Connection (OCC) educates the community on the early warning signs of ovarian cancer and provides financial assistance and resources to women currently in treatment for ovarian and gynecological cancers throughout NW Ohio and SE Michigan.
“We are honored to be named a 2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” said Kathy Mannon, OCC Board President. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year especially when we were able to extend the transportation program to women in our community undergoing treatment for gynecological cancers. Without this program, many women would not have the financial means to get to their medical appointments which is extremely important when fighting any cancer.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is the based on the rating and number of reviews that the Ovarian Cancer Connection received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “I’m so proud to be a donor. As I watch this organization work tirelessly to raise funds to provide financial support to ladies battling not only ovarian, but all types of gynecological cancers with incredible passion and determination, I am humbled to be a small contributor to the enormous impact being made in NW Ohio and SE Michigan. From paying utility bills, medical co-pays, helping navigate resources available — it is all done by volunteers (NOT 1 PAID STAFF MEMBER) with cheerful and giving hearts. What a great organization!”
“The Ovarian Cancer Connection is a notable example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Ovarian Cancer Connection.”
