About Ovarian Cancer

WHO WE ARE

In 2002, rock climber Sean Patrick established HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation as a 501c3 non-profit. Based on her own experience with the lack of information and resources concerning the disease, Sean focused HERA on increasing funding and awareness. The foundation’s mission is to support medical research, educate the public, and empower women in order to eliminate ovarian cancer.
