Thank you note from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
November 13th, 2013
Recently we got a note from Kelli Sargent, from the Community Relations & Development department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center thanking us for our donation. That note is below:
I am looking at your donation filled with absolute gratitude for al that you have done for ovarian cancer research and awareness through your golf tournament. We are incredibly grateful your support, passion, enthusiasm, and all your invaluable efforts that truly are saving lives.
We just have to get that test and generate that awareness so that we can prevent others going through what your sister, my mom, and all too many others we know suffered through.
Feel absolutely blessed for your support. We will be sure to keep you posted on any ovarian cancer developments.

Kelli also said that this year's 5k Run & Friendship Walk was the best yet. "5500 people, about $900,000 raised and still counting (hoping we can get to near $950,000). KTLA Channel 5 brought a news crew and filmed live throughout the event. And for me, it was the most special run for her since I was able to share it with my Mom." said Kelli.
"The energy and spirit from everyone there was truly awe-inspiring, energizing, comforting, and so hopeful. Feeling blessed for all the people like yourself that have helped make it what it is today. And I so hope one day soon we won’t need run for her or your golf tournament because we will have a test and a cure." Kelli added.
We at the Sharon Leigh Cancer Foundation are looking forward to next year's golf tournament, we hope to raise even more money to battle ovarian cancer!
