BENEFITING: Foundation for Women's Cancer
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
As most of you know, this is a cause very near and dear to my heart [or ovary]. And who does't want to get up and run [or walk] 5K on a Sunday morning!? I'd love it if you could join the Team and walk/run for this great cause. Or if you'd be so inclined to contribute to my fundrasing efforts, that would also be much appreciated!
"Every five minutes, a woman is diagnosed with a reproductive cancer — cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar — touching more than 98,000 American women each year. Many are not diagnosed until the late stages of these diseases, and 30,000 will die this year."
The Foundation for Women's Cancers is the only national organization dedicated to the eradication of all reproductive cancers. The Foundation for Women’s Cancer fosters new knowledge through the annual funding of research grants and, among other things, offers free educational courses for survivors of cervical, ovarian and uterine cancers in cities throughout the U.S. each year.
