Our mission — to help eradicate Cancer in our Lifetime!
October 25th — 8:00 A.M.
Campus of the College of Central Florida
We will be meeting on the morning of October 25th at 8:00 A.M. at the Ocala Eye Sponsorship Tent, as we show our support, celebrate survivors, and remember those we have lost.
All funds raised by the Ocala Royal Dames will benefit the Ocala Royal Dames organization.
Please share this with your friends and family and ask them to sponsor you by donating to the Ocala Royal Dames for Cancer Research, Inc. We are a group of 200 women from all walks of life dedicated to raising monies for cancer research and education. The organization does not hire professional fundraisers and has no office. Everyone is totally volunteer, thus making sure 100% of the net proceeds of all donations go directly to research and education.

The Ocala Royal Dames for Cancer Research, Inc., has donated to cancer research and education projects in the North Central Florida region since 1987. To date, over $2,000,000 has been given for these causes. We fund cancer research at UF Shands Cancer Center in Gainesville and H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. In Ocala, the Dames donate to the College of Central Florida for cancer education through library materials and scholarships. Also at CF, an outreach breast cancer awareness and detection program named Shop Talk is funded by the ORD. Additionally, oncology nursing continuing education is made possible through ORD funding. Outright donations to Ocala Royal Dames for Cancer Research, Inc. are most welcome, as are sponsorships of fundraisers such as the Tiara Ball, Fashion Show, Theme Party and Cookbooks.

The Royal Dames' Creed
until there's a cure for cancer, that is our utmost desire.
Each of our lives have been touched by the dreaded Cancer wrath.
So we'll willingly give of our time and wealth until a cure is within our grasp.
As we focus all of our efforts toward our one and only goal,
our dedication to fighting cancer is the Royal Dames ultimate role.
We pray for God's divine guidance, Dames keep searching to find
an everlasting cure for Cancer to benefit all mankind.
