Ovarian Cancer Research That Sets Us Apart
Among gynecologic cancers, ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death in the United States. Vague symptoms and the lack of a diagnostic test make innovative research and awareness education vital to turning fear into knowledge; devastation into passion; and tough odds into improved outcomes.
The Ovarian Cancer Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to researching this “too often” devastating cancer.
