THE STORY:

Last year, the world lost an amazing aunt, sister, daughter, wife and friend to ovarian cancer.  Frances McGann Medema passed away on October 27, 2011 after a long and courageous battle against a terrible disease. This year, in Fran's memory, I am participating in the SheROX triathlon in San Diego, CA to raise funds for ovarian cancer research so that one day no woman or family will have to face ovarian cancer.

Frances was a truly admirable woman who gave her whole heart to everything she did. During her years at UC Berkeley, Frances was an outstanding student and challenged the stereotypes placed on women at that time. College wasn't the only place where Frances strove to make a difference, while living in Nevada she ran for State Assembly despite an incredibly difficult race with an incumbent who enjoyed a party majority in that district. As a professional, Frances made a great impact at every job she had. She loved her work and was deeply dedicated to every task she took on.

In her personal life, Frances was a caring, loving, and encouraging aunt, sister, daughter, wife, and friend. Frances loved her friends and family immensely. She was a great teacher, motivator, confidant, and listener. At one Thanksgiving dinner at Fran's house, she marked seating places with each guest's name on a jar of spices symbolizing that to her each of us was the spice of life. Things like that are what made Fran so special. She was deep-hearted and had a way to really make your day.

While Fran may be gone, her spirit is still with us, and that is one of the reasons that I am doing the SheROX triathlon to raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Among the many things I learned from Fran, it is to be proactive about everything. I know she would have done the same thing for this cause and I feel that, just as she has been throughout the training for this race, she will be there with me on race day. She'll be there encouraging me and motivating me to cross that finish line.

Please help me finish my race for Fran by donating to her fundraiser. My goal is to raise $750 for ovarian cancer research. Every dollar helps and goes to an incredibly important effort. I appreciate any amount you can contribute and look forward to making your money count during the race on October 21!

Thank you very much!

Laura

MAKING AN IMPACT

In 2011, OCRF awarded a three-year, $450,000 research grant to Dr. Ivan Garcia-Bassets at the University of California, San Diego, to fund his study targeting drug-resistant ovarian cancer cells and strategies to resensitive tumor cells to existing chemotherapy.
