Mary Aaselund & Mary's Mob
As some of you know I have just completed my 4th round of chemo! Unfortunately it was not as successful as the previous (although the easiest chemo of them all). I have just been approved to use one of the new drugs that has resulted from all the research. It is chemo in a pill, or should I say, in 16 pills a day! This drug is specifically targeted to the BRCA 1 & 2 gene carriers. Since I am BRCA 2 positive my doctor is very confident that this will be successful in achieving remission & then be used on an ongoing basis.
Please consider supporting me this year by donating, signing up for the SummeRun or both! Every donation to SummeRun makes a positive impact on ovarian cancer research. Please invite your friends to join!
Every dollar raised suppots important reserach to help find new ways to detect ovarian cancer in its early stages, better treatment options and a cure for ovarian cancer. The Rivkin Center's Ovarian Cancer Early Detection Program (OCEDP) is the first free screening program of its kind in the region.
