Cure Our Ovarian Cancer
Low-grade serous carcinoma is a type of ovarian cancer that really needs your support
Low-grade serous cancer is frequently incurable and disproportionately affects young women.We hope you’ll consider joining the cause and making a donation.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was ranked #1 in the nation for gynaecological cancer care in 2019 by US World News Report.
Dr. Rachel Grisham is the Section Head of Ovarian Cancer at MSKCC and her research specifically focuses on the development of new treatments for low grade serous ovarian cancer.
Together Dr Grisham and her team are searching for answers in the lab and clinic to help women live longer, and ultimately have a life after cancer.
Already she and her colleagues have helped to better define the molecular profile of low grade serous ovarian cancer and characterize prognostic molecular and radiographic markers for this disease. In addition Dr Grisham has led several clinical trials examining novel hormonally and molecularly targeted therapies for treatment of this disease, including an ongoing phase II study of the antiandrogen, onapristone, for treatment of women with recurrent disease.
Much of the promising new research can’t even begin without donations from individuals. In most cases, government and large charitable funds become possible only after our support funds the early work that demonstrates real potential.
Too many of us know people who have faced a cancer diagnosis, and sometimes it's hard to know how we can make a difference. One of the most effective ways to help is to make sure crucial research continues to have the support needed to drive it forward.
Donations over $10 to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center are tax deductible for US residents.
