Story


My lovely sister in law, Jenny,  has a rare, frequently incurable form of ovarian cancer.  I'm celebrating my 40th birthday and don't want anything but donations for research to help find a cure. 

Currently, there is no reliable cure for low-grade serous carcinoma. Treatments can put women in remission for a time but for at least 85% of women the cancer will come back. But we can change this. I'm hosting a fundraiser to raise critically needed funds for research.

Please give what you can to help fund research for this rare cancer. It would be the best present you could give women around the world with this cancer.

Here's the website of the charity...
