HERA Celebrates 10 Years of Women’s Health and Empowerment

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation!  What better way to kick off the celebration than with the debut of the new KUED PBS documentary, “Climb for Life:  A Legacy,” about HERA’s founder, Sean Patrick.  In establishing the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, Sean gathered a community, became a catalyst for change, and continues, even after her death, to inspire the critical quest for ovarian cancer research and awareness.  The HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is deeply committed to continuing her work, and here’s how you can celebrate HERA.

Be part of our $10 for 10 Campaign.  Donate $10 per month for the remaining 10 months of the year and help us carry on Sean’s legacy. Click here to make your recurring donation now.

Challenge yourself.  Be part of our fun, creative events that are held all year, all across the country, all to benefit HERA.  From our signature Climb4LifeSM weekends to Run Like a Girl to the Ragnar Relay series to the “family friendly” Fit to Fight Triathlon Festival, there’s something for everyone.  To celebrate our 10th and help HERA, join us at one or more events in 2012.  You’ll be glad you did.

Spread the word.  Ovarian cancer is often diagnosed in its later stages because the symptoms are overlooked.  Caught early, it is treatable and curable, and raising awareness is key to saving lives.  Click here to learn the symptoms.  Share this with the women in your life.

The mission of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is to stop the loss of women to ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness.  Funds raised provide for cutting-edge scientific research grants, as well as community grants that raise awareness about the disease.  To learn more about the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, visit www.herafoundation.org.
