EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
I am on the Board of the all-volunteer CMOCF but unable to attend the annual fundraiser, ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE CURE. So I'm asking you to join my virtual team by supporting the important mission of the Foundation.
We provide direct financial support to needy ovarian cancer patients, and research grants for progress toward a diagnostic test, new treatment alternatives for better outcomes, and eventually a cure for this disease. Our mortality rates are shameful and haven't improved in decades, while other cancers have had terrific improvements due to funding dedicated to their cause. Over 80% of us are diagnosed at Stage II or IV, and 55% of them are dead on 5 years, so those of us with the good fortune to be alive must speak out, without beating around the bush!
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
