THE STORY:

Turn your $50 donation into $100!

Now through October 28th, Revlon will MATCH the first 200 donations of $50 made to the ‪#‎RevlonMillion‬ campaign with an additional $50. And, every charity that raises at least $500 will be entered for a chance to win an additional donation of $10K and $5K!

Thank you for helping to change the future of ovarian cancer!



Founded in 1994, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) awards grants to researchers working to better understand, identify, treat, and ultimately cure ovarian cancer. OCRF is the oldest and largest U.S. charity funding ovarian cancer research–only two government organizations, National Cancer Institute and Department of Defense, award more. Without sufficient grant support, researchers might otherwise turn their attention to other, better funded diseases. OCRF funding effectively enhances the breadth of the research enterprise in this nation directed specifically to ovarian cancer research.

OCRF has invested over $65 million in ovarian cancer research with 237 grants to top scientists at nearly 70 leading medical centers. Eighty-six percent (86%) of every dollar spent directly supports OCRF’s programs. OCRF grantees are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk; determining the underlying molecular biology; identifying new and better treatment targets; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it. And all OCRF research grants are approved by our world-class Scientific Advisory Committeecomprised of leaders in the field, thus ensuring the highest caliber of selections.

In 2012, OCRF launched a national support program, Woman to Woman, for women undergoing treatment for gynecologic cancer. This unique program, originally founded at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, pairs women who have undergone treatment with women who are currently going through it. With the support of our longtime partner, QVC, sites have been established at 22 medical institutions.

With your support, OCRF continues to take the lead in funding the best and most promising ovarian cancer research in our quest to end this terrible disease.

DONATION: $50

In honor of my amazing sister who is approaching her 5 year survival after being diganosed at stage 4 via emergency surgery to repair her colon that it grew into and caused it to burst. I'm not sure how you pick the charity to be entered for a chance to win an additional donation of $10K or $5K but I would love that extra donation. I race Ironman distance races for my sister and raised money for the OCRF with those races plus she gets all of my race medals no matter the distance of the race. 2016 will be my third year using my Ironman Boulder race in August to raise money for reserach. I have already raised $3,343 for 2016 and it's not even 2016 yet. I would be honored to be pick for the extra donation. https://www.crowdrise.com/IronmanBoulder2016/fundraiser/jamietwedt 2 years ago
