Since 2013 dancingforNED (NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE) has raised almost $900,000 to support the work of Dr. Beth Y. Karlan and her efforts to advance ovarian cancer care and research. Thanks to support from dancingforNED and generous friends, Dr. Karlan’s research has helped shift the standard of care for ovarian cancer to a new era of targeted therapies. Now clinicians are able to profile the tumor and personalize treatment, both of which improve clinical outcomes and quality of life. Dr. Karlan’s work in ovarian cancer has also led to new treatment options in other inherited cancers. The FDA has recently expanded drug approval for BRCA-related breast cancer, and soon will approve treatment options for pancreatic and prostate cancer.
Your support for this year’s event will have an immediate impact, enabling Dr. Karlan to aggressively expand UCLA’s Gyncologic Oncology clinical trials effort, bringing new therapies and hope to women battling ovarian cancer.
