OCCO and WOCA (Wisconsin Ovarian Cancer Alliance) were honored to exhibit at the Cancer Survivor Days Celebration. Karen Mills is such an inspiration, an ovarian cancer survivor and comedian, who approaches her life with positivity and humor. Follow her on Facebook and YouTube!




Thanks to all who support OCCO, we proudly presented a $5000 ovarian cancer research grant to HSHS/St Vincent Cancer Research Institute. Your contributions do make a difference! They currently are tracking 19 local women who completed clinical trials and enrolling additional. Pictured is Dr Erin Stevens, new gynecological oncologist. Being treated by a Gyn Onc greatly improves survival rates. Thank you for your impact on many lives!

OCCO has received $1500 from the Green Bay Packers Foundation, 223 non-profits were recognized, out of 321 applicants. The Green Bay Packers Foundation has been giving back to Wisconsin’s communities since it was established in 1986 by Judge Robert J. Parins, then president of the Packers Corporation, “as a vehicle to assure continued contributions to charity.”  The Foundation, an entity independent of the Green Bay Packers, Inc., considers grant requests from charities possessing one or more of the following goals while raising the awareness of the Packers organization as a committed and contributing member of the various communities:

> Perpetuates a community environment that promotes families and the competitive value of athletics;
> Contributes to player and fan welfare;
> Ensures the safety and education of children; and/or
> Prevents cruelty to animals.


The Ovarian Cancer Community Outreach, Inc. (OCCO) donated more than $20,000 to the St. Vincent Cancer Research Institute since its inception. This generous support will help to offset the costs associated with activating and offering additional ovarian cancer clinical trials. In addition, it will help offset some of the costs of procedures required for individual patients on studies which are not billable to insurance or the patient, and need to be provided by the research program. New studies designed to find better ways to treat this devastating disease are being developed each year.  Dr. Jonathan Tammela, Gynecologic Oncologist, and the St. Vincent Cancer Research Institute are committed to making those leading edge treatments available to the patients of our region.  We deeply appreciate the OCCO's commitment to that goal as well. 

In 2013 we helped 36 women, $35,000 which means the gap of those we have not serviced is 44 or $66,000.
