The Clearity Foundation & Molecular Profiling for Ovarian Cancer Patients
Yesterday I read a post on Libby's H*O*P*E Blog called
I learned about the launch of a new profiling test for ovarian cancer patients produced by Caris Life Sciences. Please hop on over to Libby's H*O*P*E and read Paul's excellent summary of this service.
The article also included a note about the Clearity Foundation. The Foundation a 501(3) (c) non-profit provides molecular profiling tests at no cost to ovarian cancer survivors. The Foundation was founded my Dr. Laura Shawver who was diagosed with ovarian cancer in 2006. When a woman provides her tumor for a molecular profile or "Blueprint" she agrees to have her data become part of the larger database. For more information please contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org
Every Day is a Blessing! I am so pleased to learn that more research is being done to understand the molecular profile of different types of ovarian cancer cells.
