Programs: OCRF's programs, aside from our research grants to the brightest of ovarian cancer researchers, include: a toll-free hotline, administered by staff and cancer survivors, which provides a free information packet on ovarian cancer and OCRF's activities; a video, "Surviving Ovarian Cancer," available free to the public; a Web site and bi-annual newsletter which provide valuable information about our research programs, events, and funders. OCRF produces many fund-raising events, including the annual Super Saturday, created by Donna Karan, which features a kids' carnival and designer garage sale, and the bi-enniel L'Oreal Legends Gala. The Junior Board of Directors also holds annual fundraising and awareness event.

Mission:
Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Inc. (OCRF) is the largest private organization dedicated to funding cutting-edge research to end ovarian cancer.  An estimated 200,000 women are diagnosed worldwide each year, with 22,000 women in the U.S. alone.  We believe that future advances in ovarian cancer research lie in the hands of today''s young researchers. It is for this reason that OCRF''s main funding priority has been advancing outstanding researchers early in their careers, whose projects focus on early detection, screening and basic translational research. Through our Scientific Advisory Committee, OCRF funds exceptional investigators across the country. As we strive to find a cure, we also seek to raise awareness of the disease through our many educational programs and special events.
