MOCA Cares Kits

A bit of comfort to women being treated for ovarian cancer

A MOCA Cares Kit is a small backpack filled with comfort items designed for women dealing with ovarian cancer. The backpack includes a journal, pen, MOCA mug, organic green tea, fleece blanket (when available), soft socks, teal wristbands, a pin, lip balm and an inspirational book. A coffee mug and gift card are also included, for survivors to share with their caregivers.

Any ovarian cancer survivor who is currently receiving treatment or is within one year of finishing treatment qualifies for a MOCA Cares Kit. The survivor needs to live in Minnesota or be receiving their care in Minnesota.

Contact MOCA Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany at sgliniany@mnovarian.org to request a MOCA Cares Kit.
