As OCF grew as an organization, building more national visibility and financial stability, we were able to get the support of famous people to help us deliver core messages to the public. Via nationally distributed TV Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) that have reached tens of millions of viewers each on literally hundreds of regional TV stations, the foundation reached out to the public at large. While an expensive endeavor, we believe that it is essential to engage the general public; delivering awareness of a disease they have heard little about, and offering them a call to get an opportunistic screening annually. Each PSA has a spokesperson that has public recognition through their celebrity which helps aid viewership, and each has a direct connection to the disease.
