Resources for Ovarian Cancer Survivors

The Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA) understands ovarian cancer survivors, families and caregivers have many questions
concerning the coronavirus.

We are sharing information about new MOCA programs and relevant resources from trusted sources in cancer care.

Masks with love from MOCA Program
MOCA is providing handsewn cloth masks to ovarian cancer survivors and their families through our “Masks with love from MOCA” program. These masks are intended for women with ovarian cancer who live in Minnesota or receive their health care here, plus one additional mask for a family member residing with her.

Masks are available, free of charge. If you would like to request a mask or would like to help sew masks, please contact Constance White at cwhite@mnovarian.org.
