How You Can Help

Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project

The quilt project and 2015 online quilt auction will benefit the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Through innovative research, this program aims to develop effective screening methods and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. The online auction also raises awareness for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic predisposition which increases the risk for developing both ovarian and breast cancer.

Other Ways to Support Our Cause

Of course, we can't all create a beautiful quilt.  There are other ways to donate and promote awareness (and therefore prevent) gynecologic cancers. Find out other ways to support the Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project.
