What is the Judy’s Mission Foundation?
Judy’s Mission was founded in November 2010 to honor Judith Liebenthal Robinson, Ph.D. Judy, a NASA scientist, who despite habitual exercise and a consistently healthy diet, was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer and died within a year. While battling ovarian cancer, Judy determined something must be done to raise awareness regarding the vague signs and symptoms and ineffective screening tools for ovarian cancer.
Why We Exist
- To increase awareness about ovarian cancer and its symptoms and to help call attention to the need for early diagnosis and treatment of the disease
- To educate the medical community as well as women on the signs, symptoms and the critical nature of early diagnosis of ovarian cancer
- To fund research for effective screening and treatment of ovarian cancer
Will you help us end ovarian cancer?
