About the NBOCC
The National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NBOCC) is a growing non-profit organization dedicated to education, awareness and research developments for breast and ovarian cancer. Specifically, the mission of NBOCC is to raise awareness and educate the general public about the link between breast and ovarian cancer.
The founder and executive director of NBOCC is Nikki Karl. Nikki is a lifelong supporter of the fight against breast and ovarian cancer. She established the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) Maryland Chapter in November 2003. However, having lost ten family members to breast and ovarian cancer, she realizes the importance of pairing these two diseases together so that women may understand the potentially life-saving facts regarding hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. NBOCC is dedicated to Nikki’s grandmother, who died of ovarian cancer, and her mother, who is a breast cancer survivor.
Notably, Robert E. Bristow, M.D., is a board member of, and the chief medical advisor to, NBOCC. Dr. Bristow serves as Director of the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (Johns Hopkins), as well as the Johns Hopkins Ovarian Cancer Center of Excellence. His primary research interests include radiographic imaging of gynecologic cancers, the surgical management of cancers of the ovary and endometrium, and patterns of health care delivery for women with gynecologic cancer. In addition to having received numerous awards for teaching excellence, Dr. Bristow directs the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology approved F. J. Montz Fellowship Training Program in Gynecologic Oncology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center. On July 10, 2008, U.S. News & World Report ranked Johns Hopkins as the #1 U.S. hospital (defined by highest scores in at least six medical specialties), #2 U.S. gynecology practice, and #3 U.S. oncology practice.
