BENEFITING: HERA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2016
Please help us fundraise for the HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation's fight to eliminate ovarian cancer. We are asking for $100 or more in donations to help fund scientific research grants aimed at eliminating ovarian cancer.
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. This 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.
The funds you raise will help HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation make grants to Johns Hopkins University researchers and the dream team at Stand Up To Cancer that HERA is collaboratively funding to find a cure and more effective diagnosis of ovarian cancer. It will also help us raise awareness of the sometimes elusive signs and symptoms of this insidious disease.
