Ovarian Cancer Research Fund
OCRF was founded in December 1994 by Sol Schreiber to honor the memory of his wife Ann, a distinguished public administrator, and her courageous five-year battle with ovarian cancer. Under the leadership of Liz Tilberis, the beloved late editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar, the worlds of fashion, beauty, and entertainment were united around this important cause and OCRF gained national prominence as an organization committed to changing the course of this deadly disease.Today, thanks to the ongoing commitment of these industries and the support of countless individuals, OCRF is one of the leading independent agencies dedicated to advancing ovarian cancer research in the United States. The mission of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is to fund research to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. In support of our mission, we help patients and their loved ones understand the disease and its treatment, and provide outreach programs to raise public awareness.The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization.
