Run/Walk Raises Funds to Support Ovarian Cancer Programs




The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition’s (NOCC) Massachusetts Chapter will hold its annual signature event, the Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer, on September 9, at DCR Mother’s Rest Area along beautiful Carson Beach. Ovarian cancer survivor and advocate, Elle Simone, of America’s Test Kitchen, will be the celebrity emcee.

This event is held in chapters across the country to raise funds to support programs, lift up those fighting the disease and honor those that have been lost. Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer- related deaths in women. One in 75 women will be diagnosed in her lifetime; nearly 80 percent of those in late stages when prognosis is poor because there is no consistent, reliable, early detection test.

For 20 years, the NOCC’s Massachusetts Chapter has been working in the community to empower women with the signs and symptoms of the disease and provide support and programs to assist women and their families fighting for their lives. As a nonprofit organization, the NOCC depends on donations and fundraising events to continue its mission.
