Community Education Meetings

The MOCA Living Well public education series is designed to help you live well during all stages of an ovarian cancer diagnosis.

MOCA Living Well Meetings

MOCA hosts several educational meetings each year for ovarian cancer survivors, family members and friends. These meetings are free and open to the public. We’ll provide light refreshments and you’ll have a chance to socialize and meet other survivors.

These meetings are designed for women, their families and their friends at any stage of ovarian cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
