Our team is raising money on behalf of our incredible friend and role model. She is fighting her cancer with bravery, positivity and ferocity. We are so proud of her. She has taught us all lessons on strength, compassion and generosity. We hope that "below the belt" cancer research and treatment makes rapid advances so that all of the women who are currently fighting have a clear path to everlasting remission (or even better: a CURE!).
Here is info about the event itself since the link to the event itself is hard to find!

Every 5 minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with a ‘below the belt’ gynecologic cancer. These cancers affect more than 100,000 women and cause over 30,000 deaths each year. All race proceeds help fund innovative gynecologic cancer research, and support local cancer survivors and their caregivers, our Women to Women survivorship mentoring program and September 23, 2017, survivorship conference, and our cancer nurse navigator program at The Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service in the Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics.
