OCRF and OCNA Join Forces
Merger to create largest global ovarian cancer policy advocacy and research organization WASHINGTON — Today, two of the nation’s foremost ovarian cancer policy advocacy and research organizations, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance and Ovarian Cancer Research Fund announced a merger, forming the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA). This move comes at a critical time for ovarian cancer research, when scientific discoveries are rapidly increasing but federal funding is not keeping pace to support this progress. The newly formed OCRFA will be the largest global organization dedicated to advocating for policies that give women access to the services they need before, during and after a diagnosis, and advancing critical ovarian cancer research.
Catholic Memorial High School (West Roxbury, MA) recently presented the Vince in Bono Malum award to The Julie Fund founder and CEO Peter McAvinn (’83). The award is the highest tribute the school bestows on select graduates.
The Vince in Bono Malum award recognizes graduates who have distinguished themselves either in their professional accomplishments or their service to community. Peter was honored for founding The Julie Fund for Womens Cancers and for fostering the growth of the Fund.
Vince in Bono Malum is Catholic Memorial’s school motto. Translated from Latin it means, Conquer Evil By Doing Good. “I can not think of a more fitting honor for Peter,” said CM President Emeritus Paul Sheff (’62). “From the evil, in a sense that ovarian cancer brings to a woman and her family, Peter created a great good with The Julie Fund for Womens Cancers.”
