Another wonderful thank you from Run for Her


Recently I received a glowing email from Kelli at Run for Her. Not often do you get such a wonderful thank you, and this one is especially dear to me because this thank you was for our donation of $20,000 to help fight ovarian cancer.

Dear Sharon,
  Ever since the Saturday night of the Run for Her Kick Off Party when I turned around and saw your beautiful face, I have been trying to think of how to express the extent of our gratitude to you and the Sharon Leigh Ovarian Cancer Foundation.  I was blown away with appreciation and utter excitement that you drove over 4 hours that evening to the Kick Off Party to hand deliver the incredibly generous $20,000 donation from your foundation. 

I can’t possibly put into words how profoundly helpful this is to ovarian cancer research but how full of gratitude my heart is for you making the personal delivery of such a generous gift.

  Sharon you have been a voice for ovarian cancer that echoes so powerfully across so many platforms and to so many hearts.  I have witnessed and experienced the growth of your Golf Tournament and the passion and kindness that surrounds it from so many.  You are a pioneer in this fight against ovarian cancer on every level – awareness, fundraising, the warmest of hearts, and a genuine drive to help every person affected by this disease.

  I feel so honored to know you and so honored and grateful that the Sharon Leigh Ovarian Cancer Foundation has donated such a generous gift to Run for Her.  I have attached how the money you have donated in the past has helped support the work of Dr. Beth Karlan and the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program.

Sharon, you are such an extra special gift to so many. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the hearts of our Run for Her family.
Best,
Kelli Sargent
Run for Her, Founder
Sr. Team Lead and Producer, Special Events
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Ovarian Cancer

This year in America Ovarian cancer will strike an estimated 25,500 women, and kill more than 14,000! Ovarian cancer remains the deadliest gynecologic malignancy and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States.

What’s the problem? There is no early detector for Ovarian Cancer!

It’s been 25 years since a test for ovarian cancer was introduced to help diagnose this disease.
Should this get your attention, YES!
Should you do something about it? Yes!

I sailed along in life eating well, working out regularly, I didn’t smoke, didn’t have a drinking problem, only the occasional glass of wine. When one day I was told you have cancer. I have what! Wake up Sharon you have ovarian cancer.

It was found in the first stage, why? the early detection exams listed below found my cancer. I grant this there was a history in my family as my sister died from ovarian cancer. My question has always been this, I was examined for eight years before this was found.

Why can’t these tests be used as a regular, early detection tool for the discovery. All of the reports indicate that there is not substantial evidence to back this up. I am not an MD I am just a person who wants to do something about women suffering and dying unnecessarily. These women are not the only ones suffering, their family members are with them every step of the journey.

1a blood test of the serum CA 125 level (CA 125 is a high level of protein in the body)

2 transvaginal ultrasonography (TVU)

3 a pelvic exam

There is a new biomarker ...that has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for making a diagnosis of Ovarian cancer but only for monitoring the recurrence and progression of epithelial ovarian cancer. HE4 it will improve the ability to properly treat women in whom ovarian cancer has been diagnosed. The hope is it will be used in the future for an actual early detection in conjunction with the CA 125 serum.

Lets hope and pray that soon there will be the early detection break through we have been waiting for and end this nightmare.
