september is ovarian cancer month

The White House has announced that September will be Ovarian Cancer Month.

September 25 is the date for the second annual Girlygirl 5k Run/Walk to raise funds for Dana Farber’s research to develop a pre-screening test for ovarian cancer. The race will kick off at Town Neck Beach in Sandwich, Mass. on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM. Keynote speaker is Dr. Susan Berlin, gynecologic oncologist at Dana Farber. If you would like to join the event or donate, visit www.girlygirlparts.com.

Last year, the event raised $70,000 and there were 900 participants. This year’s goal is $100,000. “GirlyGirl” is a Dana Farber Jimmy Fund charitable organization. (Please note: P.A.R.T.S. stands for Pre-screening Awareness Required to Silence Ovarian Cancer.)
