Colleen's Dream Foundation is dedicated to developing an early detection test for ovarian cancer.
The story of Colleen’s Dream started in 2007 when Colleen was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. Our eyes were opened to a new world that was filled with invasive surgery, harsh chemotherapy, and lots of uncertainty. Ovarian cancer is often referred to as “the silent killer” because many women do not discover their disease until it is in the late stages, which leads to many women succumbing to the disease within a short period of time.
At Colleen’s Dream Foundation, we feel it is important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.
We are working with some of the top research hospitals and universities that are researching ovarian cancer. Offering seed funding to young investigators, we fund cutting-edge research by some of the brightest, young minds in the world.
