The Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancer Coalition (OGCC)/Rhonda’s Club was founded in 1997 by ovarian and other gynecologic cancer survivors. In 2001, we added the name “Rhonda’s Club” to honor one of our founders, Rhonda Oziel, who was a driving force behind the creation of this regional organization as well as the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA).

In 2016, OCNA merged with the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund to form the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA). This new alliance is the largest global organization dedicated to advancing private research, advocating for increased federal research and awareness dollars, and supporting women and their families before, during and after a diagnosis.
OGCC/Rhonda’s Club is a proud community partner of OCRFA serving the Baltimore-Washington region.
