Speaking for all Ovarian Cancer Survivors
I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Leighton when I attended the ASCO meeting in June. Susan was also one of the Focus on Research Scholars ©. With our common focus on ovarian cancer research and our we attended many of the same sessions and quickly became friends.
Susan was asked by the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance to represent all ovarian cancer survivors and provide testimony to the Senate Appropriation Subcommittee on Defense. She was urging the subcommittee to provide flat funding of $20 Million for ovarian cancer research. You can read her own words here. There was also a nice article on the website Alabama Live regarding her appearance on Capital Hill.
Way to go Susan!
Every Day is a Blessing!
