MOCA was started in 1999 by a small group of ovarian cancer survivors who came together to fund ovarian cancer research, raise awareness of the disease, and provide support to women with ovarian cancer and their families.
Since the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance was founded in 1999, their mission has been to:
- Create an awareness regarding early warning signs that may be indicative of ovarian cancer.
- Create and promote resources for support, networking and education for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and their families.
- Unite and educate individuals, the medical community and organizations to achieve earlier diagnosis, better treatment and a cure for ovarian cancer.
