Meet Our Founders



Our family has been personally and deeply affected by Ovarian and Pediatric Cancer. We are inspired to fight alongside those who are still fighting and to mourn with those who are mourning. We accomplish the most by working together with our friends, family, and community organizations.  Join our family by serving those in need with kindness, charity, and hope.”
