The mission of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA), is to promote awareness and early detection of ovarian cancer through advocacy and education while providing support to people affected by ovarian cancer. Our staff, board of directors, and volunteers work to increase awareness of symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer in the general population. We create and promote resources that provide support, encourage networking, and provide information to women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. COCA unites and educates individuals, the medical community, and organizations to overcome ovarian cancer. Our organization also advances ovarian cancer research toward a better treatment, diagnosis and an eventual cure for the disease.
COCA was established in June 2005 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Our Board of Directors includes community leaders as well as ovarian cancer survivors, friends and family of women who are survivors or who have lost their battles with this disease.
