JW Schaffner Mission Statement

The Julie W. Schaffner Ovarian Cancer Fund is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to:

  • Save or extend women's lives by increasing public awareness of the symptoms and early detection of ovarian cancer; and
  • Provide resources to support innovative, cutting-edge research that has the potential to significantly reduce — or eliminate entirely - the high mortality rate associated with this disease.

Join us in our fight against ovarian cancer. We know we can make a difference in women's lives.
