Advocates' Hard Work Pays Off in Research Funding

February 10, 2014

The appropriation bill Congress recently passed for this fiscal year contains some good news for the ovarian cancer community. It allocates $20 million for the Ovarian Cancer Research Program - the amount the Alliance and our 6 MIOCA advocates requested from their legislators at Advocacy Day meetings last summer. CDC cancer control and awareness programs also received robust funding. Plus funding for both the National Institutes of Health and National Cancer Institute--which typically fund around $100 million in ovarian cancer research yearly--will rise by around 3%.
