Be the Difference Foundation was formed in 2012 by four ovarian cancer survivors, Helen Gardner, Jill Bach, Julie Shrell and Lynn Lentscher, who share the same passion to Be the Difference in the fight against the disease. These women experienced first-hand the little hope given for survival when they were diagnosed. Be The Difference Foundation was started to give survivors hope. Hope for better treatment options; hope for longer remissions and ultimately hope for a cure. To this goal, Be The Difference Foundation focuses its efforts on the following initiatives:
• Research for a cure
• Innovative clinical trials
• Medical support services including personalized tumor profiling and treatment recommendations
• Travel cost assistance to clinical trials
