How You Can Help

Ovarian Cancer Research

Ovarian cancer continues to be the leading cause of death among gynecologic cancers, primarily because in over 75% of cases, it is not detected until it has already progressed to an advanced stage. Unfortunately, there is no screening or early detection test available and the symptoms are subtle. This year, 22,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and over 15,000 women will die.

The Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program was created in 1996 as a critical step toward the goal of eradicating ovarian cancer. The program was the nation’s first formal, comprehensive ovarian cancer research effort to translate basic scientific discoveries into improved therapies and disease management.

Today, the program continues its mission of innovative research into the causes, prevention, detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. A gift of financial support is critical for continued research and educational programs in the community to help women become proactive about their gynecologic health. Collaborative support and funding from foundations such as Callaway Golf Foundation advance the mission of the program.
