New programs address ovarian cancer education and reduce financial barriers to improve health outcomes for survivors.

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) celebrates its 30th year of supporting survivor quality of life and ovarian cancer research, the organization has launched two new programs to reaffirm its commitment to increasing health equity in the ovarian cancer community.

You and Ovarian Cancer - Animated Patients Guide

From the time of diagnosis, ovarian cancer patients, caregivers, and families face the daunting task of understanding this disease and making critical health decisions. NOCC’s You and Ovarian Cancer - Animated Patients Guide was developed in collaboration with Mechanisms in Medicine to provide credible, health literate, and evidence-based ovarian cancer education. This highly visual resource aims to provide the education, knowledge, and skills people need to make informed health decisions with their health care team. This program can be found at YouAndOvarianCancer.com. NOCC would like to thank its partners for their support of this education program, Alkermes plc, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP, Clovis Oncology, Inc., Eisai Inc., Genentech, GSK, Merck & Co, Inc., Novartis, Novocure Inc., Pfizer, Inc.


NOCC Financial Assistance Program

Understanding full well the financial burden that an ovarian cancer diagnosis can have on an individual and their families, the NOCC Financial Assistance Program was created with the Patent Advocate Foundation to support patients with non-medical expenses that will reduce the financial barriers associated with diagnosis and adherence to treatment. This program aims to support treatment adherence for a better quality of life and clinical trial participation, which will lead to advancement in ovarian cancer research. The program is divided into two funds;

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Treatment Fund provides $1,000 to offset the costs of non-medical expenses for those in active treatment or on maintenance therapy for ovarian cancer.

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Clinical Trial Fund provides $2,500 to offset the costs of non-medical expenses related to enrollment and participation in clinical trials.

As the organization looks to the next 30 years and beyond; both programs will serve to address critical health priorities in the ovarian cancer community. Reducing barriers to understanding ovarian cancer, treatment adherence, and clinical trial participation will lead to a world where no one will lose their life to this disease.
