Please join us on Saturday, September 27th for a virtual walk/run/ride to benefit the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center for the Study of Trophoblastic Disease. (click here to watch our fun video on the event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dss04wx3-L4&feature=em-upload_owner

What is GTT? 

Gestational trophoblastic tumor, a rare cancer in women, is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells grow in the tissues that are formed following conception (the joining of sperm and egg). Gestational trophoblastic tumors start inside the uterus, the hollow, muscular, pear-shaped organ where a baby grows. This type of cancer occurs in women during the years when they are able to have children. There are two types of gestational trophoblastic tumors: hydatidiform mole and choriocarcinoma.

To read more about this please visit http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Gestational-Trophoblastic-Tumor.aspx#Cancer_Summary.

Why are we doing this?

Through the help of knowledgeable doctors many women are given a quick diagnosis and immediate and thorough treatment. However, many doctors and women across the United States (and Internationally), still do not have enough knowledge of this disease to make early detetction of a molar pregnancy possible.

Through the leadership of Dr. Donald Goldstein, and the team at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center, they have become the premiere research facility for this disease. We are raising money for their endowment fund which supports research and teaching programs in Trophoblastic Disease. 

What you can do:

First off, make a donation. Any amount! 

Secondly, gather with your friends and family somewhere nearby and take pictures of yourselves walking, running or riding your bikes together, and upload to social media with the #TBDWalkRunRide2014. (The link to some participating locations is below)

Thirdly, share this event with anyone else you know who has been impacted by TBD. Getting the word out helps create more awareness and it is our hope that we can bring this disease the attention it needs. 

TBDWalkRunRide2014 Locations:

New Jersey: Duke Island Park, Bridgewater, NJ - Apple Gazebo at 1pm
