Mucinous ovarian cancer is difficult to diagnose, often striking women at a younger age than other types of ovarian cancer. Many times it is missed or misdiagnosed. There is currently no screening test and the options for treatment are limited. Yet little research is devoted to this disease.
The Mucinous Ovarian Cancer Coalition is working to change all of that.
We Invite You to Join Us in the Fight!
The Walk 4 Hope is a fundraiser for Rhonda’s Award, a grant dedicated to research for early detection and treatment of mucinous ovarian cancer. Our ultimate goal is to fund research that leads to a cure.
