BENEFITING: Foundation for Women's Cancer
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Every 5 minutes, a woman is diagnosed with a reproductive cancer, impacting more than 98,000 women each year. For 25 years the Foundation for Women’s Cancer has paved the way for the gynecologic cancer awareness movement by raising awareness, providing educational programs and resources, and supporting crucial research to end women's cancer.
Three years ago I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. As someone personally affected by this, I understand the importance of this research and the ability to receive treatment for the best outcomes. Thanks to my amazing doctors and a top notch team at MSKCC, I was able to beat it, but many women are not so lucky.
Please help me raise awareness and funding to defeat “below the belt” gynecologic cancers. All funds raised through the National Race go toward the Foundation for Women's Cancer's mission to raise awareness about prevention, risks, symptoms and early detection, and to fund research into new diagnostic tools and better treatments to end women's cancer. Any contribution is greatly appreciated!
Thank you for joining the movement! xo
