Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition (AROVCC) exists with the purpose to educate the public on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. AROVCC is solely a volunteer-based organization, all of the amazing individuals involved do so because of their personal connection to the disease.
We provide educational material and seminars through a variety of avenues including lunch-n-learns, health fairs, print advertising, and broadcast media. We also serve as a resource by providing survivor kits and offering a survivors-helping-survivors program to assist those who are newly diagnosed.
More than 14,000 women a year in the United States will lose their battle to ovarian cancer. Known as the “silent killer” among gynecological cancers, ovarian cancer has a very low survival rate. This disease often is not diagnosed until the later stages when a woman’s survival chances are less than 10%, making awareness of common symptoms a vital key in early detection. In June 2009, the AROVCC was granted 501(c)3 non-profit status and we have proudly served Arkansans for over ten years!
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Our passion is you.
Our heart is in education.
Our spirit is compassion.
Our presence is through support.
To make a difference in ovarian cancer awareness and education throughout the state of Arkansas.
