Please join the HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation's fight to eliminate ovarian cancer.
I love to climb.The Climb4Life gives me a chance to give back, and with your help, fight a disease that took a very good friend of mine, way too early. I've volunteered for four years, and this year I'm the event organizer. I want to make sure C4L 2016 is the best ever! So, please donate whatever you can. I look forward to the day when some of the promising new therapies are a reality, and I can just go out and play on the rocks. Thanks!
Ovarian cancer is often called the “silent killer” because the early symptoms are subtle and difficult to diagnose. If caught early enough, many women survive, but without an early detection test and awareness of the symptoms, another 15,000 women will die from this disease this year. One in 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime. Which means the odds are that someone in your life will be affected by this disease. You can help change this story from tragedy to hope by donating to the Climb4Life Boston.
