A Diagnosis of Mucinous Ovarian Cancer

When you or a woman in your life is diagnosed with mucinous ovarian cancer (MOC), it’s common to feel frustrated and helpless, sad and mad. You don’t know what to do next.

We understand. We’ve been there.

In fact, that’s how this Coalition got its start. Friends and family of Rhonda, a vivacious Michigan woman, felt powerless to know what to do or how to help after her diagnosis of MOC.

Because MOC is so rare, it doesn’t get the attention or the financial support it so desperately needs. Nor are there many people out there advocating for women with the disease.

You can help us change that.  
Her Fight Is Our Fight—and Yours, Too

You and your loved ones can join the fight in many ways, including:

Donate: Our mission-driven organization awards grants to researchers focused on mucinous ovarian cancer, while also helping improve the quality of life for women with the disease. There are a variety of ways you can assist. Visit Ways to Give to learn how.

Inform: September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. (It’s also the birth month of our founder and chairwoman, Rhonda!) That’s a great time to add your voice to others shining a spotlight on this disease. But you can also help us raise awareness any time of year. Visit Spread the Word  for tips and tools you can use.

Advocate: Help the Coalition connect with gynecologists, oncologists, social workers, discharge planners, and others. It’s the best way to make sure they refer women diagnosed with MOC, as well as their loved ones, to our website. We’ll be happy to send you a PDF postcard you can download and share in your local community. Email us at Hope4MOC@gmail.com for a copy!
