Support for Research
OGCC/Rhonda’s Club supports research to find more efficacious and increased quality of life treatments and ultimately, cures for ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancers. We support Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. To learn more about SU2C, go to: http://www.standup2cancer.org
We also participate with the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation through its Race to End Women's Cancer to raise funds for high potential research relating to ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancers in order to improve treatments and find the cures.
We volunteer as consumer advocates on review boards within the National Cancer Institute and the Department of Defense to help select research grants leading toward reliable screening tests and more effective treatments of gynecologic cancers.
