Coffee For A Cure

by Lexi Mestas




Coffee For A Cure is an effort led by Lexi Mestas, who was diagnosed with Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer in 2021 at the age of 27. She has partnered with over 10 coffee shops in the southeast to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer and this severely underfunded rare subtype. Each coffee shop is selling a unique drink for the month of September with all proceeds directly benefitting STAAR are critical research.

A huge thank you to the coffee shops involved:











STAAR exists to fund life-saving research for women with low-grade serous, a rare and severely underfunded ovarian cancer subtype.  Low-grade serous represents fewer than 8% of cases of ovarian cancer and disproportionately affects younger women.  Further, being a rare cancer means that private donations are critical to fund research.  More research means more time for adventures, more holidays, and more memory making!
