FY 2015 Spending 

Each year, volunteers from the Advocate Leaders and Grassroots Advocates programs (both of which are programs organized by the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, or OCNA) join staff of OCNA to advocate for federal funding of some programs important to the ovarian cancer community.

These select volunteers are joined in Washington, D.C. on Advocacy Day (in July) by hundreds of additional advocates who meet with their own elected representatives and senators.
