Whether you have special skills or just want to roll up your sleeves and pitch in, MOCA can always use your help.

MOCA Star Events

Are you looking for a new, fun way to support MOCA?

Become a MOCA Star by hosting your own event to raise funds for MOCA.  MOCA Star Events are a great way to bring your office community, friends and family or neighborhood together, all while raising funds to support programs for women and families facing ovarian cancer, vital research, and awareness activities. We encourage both personal and corporate events – from coin drives and bake sales to corporate fun nights and galas.

If you are interested in learning more about MOCA Star Events, please call the MOCA office at (612) 822-0500 or email us. We would be happy to provide you with more information about hosting and planning a MOCA Star Event.

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, call (612) 822-0500 or send us an email.

Ovarian Cancer Survivors: You Can Make a Difference

If you would like to volunteer as a public speaker or help with the administration of the medical education programs, MOCA can use your help. Please contact MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany for more information.

Survivors Teaching Medical Students®

This program literally puts a face on a disease by having survivors speak to third- and fourth-year medical students about their diagnosis and treatment. We are grateful to survivors for sharing their stories! Please contact MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany more information.

The Medical Residents Program

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. Please contact MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany for more information.

Internship Opportunities

Please visit the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits job posting board for any current internship openings. We post internships for special events and communications throughout the year, typically on a semester basis.
