Why does scientific research take so long to show results? Shouldn't ovarian cancer be cured by now? What is being done to improve the outlook for women with ovarian cancer or at risk for ovarian cancer?
These are just a few of the thorny questions that were tackled by Dr. Michael Seiden, President & CEO of the Fox Chase Cancer Center at Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's inaugural "Science of Hope" Research Symposium on Saturday, November 13th in New York City and via live webcast. OCRF was proud to present this very special day of discovery and awareness as an esteemed panel of scientists addressed current efforts to improve early detection and new and promising treatments for ovarian cancer while raising awareness and providing important information on services, clinical trials and other resources. They were be joined by ovarian cancer survivors who eloquently shared their personal experience with the disease.
The mission of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is to provide funding to scientists in an effort to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. In support of this, OCRF also helps patients and their families understand the disease and its treatment, and supports outreach programs to raise public awareness.
