In Events, Survivors

We want you all to know MOCA is here for you. We understand these are challenging times, especially for women and families facing ovarian cancer. You are not alone. MOCA will continue to support ovarian cancer survivors, loved ones, caregivers and our community. We will work together to make sure everyone who needs our help receives it.

MOCA will continue our important work of providing support to women and families impacted by ovarian cancer, while also advancing and funding life-saving ovarian cancer research to change the future of this disease. We will also continue to educate the public and medical community about ovarian cancer. We are quickly responding to changing conditions and are developing new, innovative ways to accomplish our mission.

Based on CDC recommendations concerning the coronavirus, MOCA is discontinuing in-person support offerings for the time being. We will continue to offer over the phone support to ovarian cancer survivors, loved ones and caregivers. MOCA Cares Kits will be sent to all who need them. Mentors will continue to be arranged for over the phone support. We will also be adding online connection opportunities. Soon, we will be sharing details on how to connect with MOCA’s new online support community.

While our work and dedication to our mission remains the same, the MOCA staff is now adjusting hours at the office to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved. Please call ahead if you need our assistance on-site.

Remember, we are here for you. For immediate support needs, please contact MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany at or call 612-584-3550. If you have questions or concerns about MOCA, please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email at
