Our Mission

Someday, a cure.

The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona (OCAZ) is a charitable group of volunteers, survivors, and community leaders. Our vision is to conquer ovarian cancer in Arizona. Our purpose is elevating ovarian cancer awareness, survivorship, and care.

OCAZ works with public and medical communities, building bridges that help our constituency. We empower and inspire survivors, offering tools to improve their quality of life. And we serve as advocates to increase funding for research and better treatments.

Someday, a cure.

We are committed to informing Arizona women about the symptoms of ovarian cancer in order to diagnose the disease earlier, when the cancer is most treatable.

  • Our flagship campaign, Be One In A Million, reached over 600,000 women in 2008.
  • We brought ovarian cancer to the ballpark, with the Diamondbacks’ an Ovarian Cancer Awareness Night at Chase Field.
  • Ovarian cancer has received continuous media exposure since our campaign began.
  • Thousands of Phoenix drivers pass by our ‘Symptoms’ billboard every day.
