MOCA Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with MOCA

If you are interested in getting involved with MOCA, sign-up to be a volunteer and help promote the mission and goals of MOCA.

Help represent MOCA during special events
Interested in representing MOCA at a health fair or conference? This is a great opportunity for ANYONE — you don’t have to be a survivor. MOCA exhibits at awareness events throughout the year in public, educational and cancer-specific settings, spreading awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact our Community and Support Program Manager Chris Wick at or call (612) 822-0500.

Ovarian cancer survivors: You can make a difference

Survivors Teaching Medical Students® literally puts a face on a disease by having survivors speak to third- and fourth-year medical students about their diagnosis and treatment.

The medical residents’ program pairs a gynecologic oncologist with a survivor to deliver prepared talks to primary care residents. The hereditary cancers program pairs a woman who has had genetic counseling and testing with a panel of others who present information to the public about reducing elevated risks for ovarian cancer for people who inherit BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 gene mutations.

Survivor Stories

I want to encourage other survivors to find inner tools that can create new possibilities for themselves despite the disease.

Ovarian cancer survivors share their stories, because no one should have to face this disease alone.
