Our Mission

The mission of the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA) is to increase awareness and educate women, their families, as well as the health care community about risks, symptoms, and treatment of ovarian cancer leading to earlier detection.

About GOCA 

In 1998, a group of Atlanta women met each other at the St. Joseph’s Gynecological Cancer Support Group.  All ovarian cancer survivors with different stories to share, they began pooling their energies and passions with the intent to bring awareness of ovarian cancer and early detection to the forefront of women’s health issues.  The first step was to educate Georgia’s women, their families and their healthcare providers about the risks, symptoms and treatments of ovarian cancer.

This initial passion and our “Awareness. Knowledge. Action.” campaign remains very much the focus of GOCA today.

Since our beginning, GOCA has transformed from an idea hatched at a founders dining room table to a very strong, community based non-profit organization led by those touched by ovarian cancer in some way.  With a strong base of supporters, volunteers, and staff we continue to reach thousands of women and their families with our life saving messages.
