Dine and Donate to support Team Taylor
Tuesday, September 26, from 5 pm – 9 pm
J.T. Bankers Saloon, 309 S Main Street, Sellersville, PA
Jodi Fermier is hosting a fundraising dinner to benefit STAAR Ovarian Cancer Foundation's Step Up America campaign. Jodi's daughter Taylor was diagnosed with stage 3 low-grade serous ovarian cancer last September.
The first 100 guests will receive free T-shirts with ovarian cancer symptoms on the back to help raise awareness, and have the opportunity to buy Team Taylor/Taylor Tough bracelets and raffle tickets for a 50/50 drawing and gift baskets.
Donations support research for effective treatments to improve the outcomes for people who have low-grade serous ovarian cancer.
LGSOC is a rarer subtype that tends to affect younger people than other types of ovarian cancer, with an average age at diagnosis of 45. It has a high rate of recurrence, few effective treatments, and unlike other types of cancers, does not receive federal research funding.
Last year, STAAR raised funds to award $76,000 to the University of Texas MD Anderson research into Trametinib resistance, and $250,000 to Memorial Sloan Kettering to research which patients are more likely to respond to chemotherapy.
