Community Involvement

 

clearityfoundation

The Clearity Foundation is a group of scientists, physicians and volunteers who feel passionately about changing the paradigm for ovarian cancer treatment in hope of providing more cures today. The founder, Dr. Laura Shawver was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006 and learned first-hand that treatment options are extremely limited. After her chemotherapy treatment ended in 2007, she established The Clearity Foundation along with a small group of friends and colleagues who are on a quest to apply the knowledge of the genetic signature of ovarian cancers to improve treatment options for patients.
