Malene Grotrian Design has been a big supporter of Ovarian Cancer Research. We have continued to support the cause of Ovarian Cancer in a variety of ways over the years and are excited to be creating the 2nd annual Full Circle Fashion Event to continue in our fundraising efforts.
All proceeds from the Full Circle Fashion Event will be directed to OVCARE, Vancouver’s very own Ovarian cancer research team. This event is the first of its kind for OVCARE, and we are very proud to lead this charge.
The OVCARE Research Team is proudly supported by The UBC Faculty of Medicine, The BC Cancer Foundation and The VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. The purpose of our FULL CIRCLE Fashion Event is to raise funds and local awareness in support of OVCARE and their ongoing commitment to research in Ovarian cancer, the most serious of all gynecologic cancers.
In British Columbia, we have the best outcomes (survival rates) for Ovarian cancer in the world. But the sad fact remains: Ovarian cancer has a 75% mortality rate. Research is the only hope we have of saving the lives of women who are suffering with this disease.
Dr. Dianne Miller (Chair of BC’s provincial gynecologic tumor group), Dr. David Huntsman, and the rest of the OVCARE Team have been at the forefront of Ovarian cancer research in their efforts to develop a screening test for the disease, develop improved treatment protocols and ultimately, to find a cure. OVCARE is leading the world with their B.C. initiative in Ovarian cancer prevention, which has recently gained international support.
