About Ovarian Cancer Action

Ovarian Cancer Action (OCA) was founded in 2006, with a single purpose: to fund research to prevent women dying from ovarian cancer. We fund world-class scientific research leading to innovative treatments and progressive solutions. We campaign to ensure women and healthcare providers know the risk factors, symptoms and treatment options to enable informed and rapid action. Despite being the UK’s deadliest gynaecological cancer, claiming a woman’s life every two hours, ovarian cancer remains an underfunded and overlooked disease. And that’s not ok with us. In fact, diseases like breast cancer had better survival rates five decades ago than ovarian cancer does in 2019. That’s why we raise awareness of the disease amongst healthcare professionals and the general public, fight to put women’s health firmly on the political agenda, and campaign for change.

We are based at 8-12 Camden High Street, London, NW1 0JH. Our office-based team is made up of 20 talented staff members plus volunteers, all of whom work hard to spread our message, campaign for change, and generate the vital funds we need to support the scientific innovators who will help beat ovarian cancer. We have a broad network of vital supporters, from community fundraisers and corporate partners, to our family of Voices who champion the cause across the UK.

Our mission is to stop women dying of ovarian cancer but we can’t do it alone. We mobilise people to take action, to spread the word, to tell their stories, and raise the vital funds we need to beat the disease once and for all.
