Greater Newburyport Ovarian Cancer Awareness is a group of volunteers from the Greater Newburyport area planning a series of events for the month of September to increase community awareness of this disease and to raise funds to support Ovations for the Cure.

Education and Awareness

Help Fund Cancer Research

Our goal is to educate and increase awareness to help fund cancer research and patient services for women with ovarian cancer in our communities.

"Our hummingbird is a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and discovering the miracle of joyful living from one's own life circumstances."
