Someone lived to start The Clearity Foundation, a non-profit advocacy organization for women fighting ovarian cancer. An inspiring event, which celebrated survival, hope and progress in changing the odds for women with the disease, took place in June at the Leheny/Scheibler residence in Rancho Santa Fe. It featured music in the gardens, wine, hors d’oeuvres and dessert. Catering was by Pamplemoussse. Approximately 130 guests attended, many from San Diego’s biotechnology/healthcare industry.
About The Clearity Foundation – La Jolla, CA
The Clearity Foundation is the only 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping ovarian cancer patients make more informed treatment decisions with personalized diagnostic information. Every year, more than 14,000 women die of ovarian cancer and approximately 21,000 are newly diagnosed. When a patient’s ovarian cancer returns after standard chemotherapy, a chance for a cure is less than 15%, or less than 3% if she did not respond to initial treatment. Ovarian cancer survivor and scientist Laura Shawver, Ph.D. established The Clearity Foundation to improve treatment options for ovarian cancer patients and change the one-size-fits-all approach.
