Supporting the Financial Needs of Women with OC
The recent One Force To Make a Difference Symposium brought together ovarian cancer organizations in the NJ area. I learned about a foundation that goes beyond awareness campaigns and supporting research but also provides financial support for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The foundation was started in 2009 to honor the memory and legacy of Mary Anne Mazanec, a teacher and volunteer.
The Mary Anne Mazanec Ovarian Cancer Foundation 's mission is : "to provide assistance and support for patients and families in the area affected by ovarian cancer; to support the cancer research efforts of Dr. George Coukos at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania; and to promote awareness of ovarian cancer."
If you know a woman in the NJ area who would benefit from the support of the Foundation please fill out the Financial Assistance request form found on this page.
Thank you to the family and friends of MaryAnne Mazanec for supporting the needs of women with ovarian cancer.
Every Day is a Blessing!
