About HERA Women's Cancer Foundation
The mission of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is to stop the loss of women from ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research and Awareness.
HERA is a nationally recognized ovarian cancer organization that provides funding for cutting-edge research grants to scientists at respected medical institutions. 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.
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.
