Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) is the largest non-government funder of ovarian cancer research and has invested over $85 million in research since 1998 including 31 grants totaling nearly $10 million to researchers in Texas. OCRA fights ovarian cancer from all fronts, including in the lab and on Capitol Hill, and through innovative programs to support survivors and their families.
OCRA’s ongoing investments in the most promising scientific research is funding discoveries, creating new treatments, and hastening desperately needed breakthroughs. OCRA is the voice for the ovarian cancer community, working with legislators to ensure federal ovarian cancer research and education, patient safety, and access to high-quality care are protected on Capitol Hill. OCRA’s programs help women navigate their diagnosis and support patients and their families when and where they need it most. Visit ocrahope.org to learn more.
I am thrilled to help introduce OCRA to Dallas. This organization, which spends 81 cents of every dollar raised to fund crucial ovarian cancer research and programs to support survivors, brings hope to so many. Those attending the OCRA Hope fashion show will experience an evening of beautiful fashion and fun while supporting this incredible organization.
