From their website:
The Honorable Tina Brozman Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research (Tina’s Wish) is an ovarian cancer non-profit organization dedicated to funding groundbreaking scientific research for the prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer. Know Early. Know Hope.® This is our mission.
Tina’s Wish was founded in 2008 in memory of the Honorable Tina Brozman, former chief judge of the SDNY Bankruptcy Court, who died two years after she was diagnosed – too late – with ovarian cancer. Tina was not angry that she had the disease, she was angry that she did not know sooner.
Too many patients with ovarian cancer – 80% – are diagnosed at an advanced stage, once the tumor has metastasized. Treatment is much less effective at this point. A diagnostic method that could detect the disease at an earlier stage is therefore critical.
Since its inception, the foundation has raised over $17 million for its cause. Annually, Tina’s Wish now funds $1.3 million of scientific research for the early detection and prevention of ovarian cancer.
We are accelerating the pace of progress towards saving women’s lives. Together, we can make Tina Brozman’s wish – to discover an effective early detection screen for ovarian cancer – a reality.
