The mission of the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA), a 501c-3 non-profit, is to increase awareness and educate Georgia’s women of all ages and their families, as well as the healthcare community about the risks and symptoms leading to early detection. GOCA serves the state of Georgia with public outreach programs, education and awareness, and fundraising events. With no sure way of predicting ovarian cancer and no single screening test to identify it at the earlier, pre-symptomatic stages, awareness and education are an urgent priority for all women in order to protect themselves from late-stage ovarian cancer.
