In doing so, HERA promotes cross-disciplinary science and seeks to attract young researchers to expand the scientific understanding of ovarian cancer while improving the lives of those battling this disease. The projects funded focus on mechanisms of ovarian cancer development, growth, and treatment. HERA also embraces projects related to raising awareness about ovarian cancer and its symptoms in different communities around the country. By stressing the concept of “community,” HERA supports and empowers those undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer, as well as women who are healthy. Via its signature Climb4LifeSM and auxiliary fundraising events, coupled with funding from multiple other sources, HERA remains committed to investing at least 85% of the monies raised each year in programs that continue to provide research, awareness, education and community support. In brief, the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation aspires to continually expand its sphere of influence and touch the lives of all those affected by ovarian cancer.
