THE STORY:

Alex Locke wrote -

We're back!  And HERA Women's Cancer Foundation is bringing #c4l #slc back in a big way.

The mission of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is to eliminate ovarian cancer.  We do this by funding cutting edge research to find new directions in ovarian cancer treatment, prevention, and early detection.

Currently no effective test exists to reliably diagnose the disease early when the chance for survival is greatest. Current treatment protocols have not appreciably altered mortality from this disease. Incidence rates have decreased only slightly, and much more work needs to be done.  Our priority is to understand this disease so that a test for early detection and more effective treatments can be developed.

Because there are fewer numbers of well survivors to raise awareness for ovarian cancer, research has been grossly under funded. Progress is stalled due to lack of adequate research dollars. HERA is working to change this by awarding grants, participating at National Cancer Institute forums, and staying on the national advocacy front.

I've been proud to work with HERA for over 10 years, and I know that donations to HERA go farther than almost any other organization. HERA is proud to send 88% of every dollar to research and awareness. Won't you consider making a donation today?
