OCRF - Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

Amrita Singh Jewelry has raised $150,000 for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) over the last three years at its annual Super Saturday event, and we have been proud to benefit OCRF time and again through our charity fundraising events and sales.

 

Ovarian cancer accounts for more deaths than all other gynecologic cancers combined and is the 5th leading cause of cancer death among women.  In the United States, there will be approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer each year, and about 15,500 women will die of the disease.  Currently there is no effective means of early detection.  As a result, just over half of all patients are alive and disease-free five years after diagnosis.  However, if detected and treated early the five-year survival rate is 92%. 

 

Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is the largest private non-profit organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to funding ovarian cancer research.  Since 1998, OCRF has awarded 178 grants for ovarian cancer research to 63 leading medical centers which is an investment totaling nearly $45 million.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, our investigators are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for ovarian cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it.   

 

Every dollar donated brings us closer to a cure for this devastating disease.
