Gaovarian Cancer Alliance

The mission of the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA) is to increase awareness and educate women and their families as well as the health care community about risks, symptoms, and treatment of ovarian cancer leading to earlier detection.

Awareness. Knowledge. Action Campaign

Our Awareness. Knowledge. Action campaign consists of speaking engagements and dissemination of GOCA collateral to women of all ages, and their families, across Georgia. Our mission is to generate a greater awareness of the symptoms and signs of ovarian cancer, so that these women will have a greater understanding of the disease.  This is accomplished via health fairs, speaking engagements, Lunch & Learn sessions, and community events.  The utilization of ovarian cancer patients and survivors during these presentations “puts a name and a face” on the disease, and validates the message along with the importance of knowing the facts, signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, and informing women of the importance of knowing their body and taking action that leads to early diagnosis.  We have resources across the state and can tailor a presentation, large or small, to any demographic.  Through the use social media we are able to reach new partners that can help spread our mission as well as promote other ovarian cancer organizations.
