2nd Annual Turn the Tiles Teal Mahjong Event

An Evening of Mahjong, Mingling, Lite Bites and Libations

LET'S HELP FUND A TREATMENT AND FIND A CURE!!!

Buy tickets now! Last year's "Turn the Tiles Teal" Mahjong event sold out!


Calling All Houston Mahjong Aficionados (and even those who just want to see what it's all about):

Join me on Tuesday, September 26th at 7:00 p.m. at the Houston Racquet Club for a fun evening of mahjong as you help raise much needed funds for researching treatments that could save the lives of people with low-grade serous ovarian cancer. Every year, women of all ages are affected by ovarian cancer, especially the rare form low-grade serous ovarian cancer (LGSOC), which disproportionately affects younger people, 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. Throughout the evening, we will educate you on the symptoms of ovarian cancer and precautions you can take.

Funds raised will be distributed by STAAR Ovarian Cancer Foundation, a U.S. nonprofit dedicated to raising research funds for LGSOC. STAAR is governed and run 100% by a volunteer board and committee members, half of whom have been diagnosed with LGSOC. Since 2020, STAAR has contributed over $500,000 in funding for research projects at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Last year alone, 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.

***I am chairing this event in honor of all women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, in particular, Nicole Andrews, the brain child behind the Step Up America campaign, and in memory of Jane Cabes, a long-time friend, who succumbed to ovarian cancer this past December. I miss you Jane!!***
