Your dollar counts. Did you know most research foundations invest only a small percentage into actual research? 90% of WCRF donations go directly to research.

To Our Dedicated Supporters:

Everything continues to go very well. We are succeeding in our mission to improve the cure rates of women cancer patients. Research is the key to finding new cures. Our supporters are truly helping find new cures by increasing the number of new treatments we can study. We thank you for your past support and hope you will continue to assist us in helping patients worldwide.

WCRF is presently involved in many studies that involve immunotherapy for the treatment of various gynecologic cancers. We are collaborating with Genelux utilizing an intra-abdominal live virus to kill ovarian cancer cells. WCRF is honored that after a worldwide search, Genelux chose WCRF to be its third worldwide study site. The other sites are at major cancer centers in Germany and Florida. This study is a landmark development in cancer treatment.

We are also utilizing a different immunotherapy (avelumab), a medication developed by Pfizer, in combination with chemotherapy for newly-diagnosed ovarian cancer patients. Finally, consistent with the 2018 Nobel Prize in Medicine, WCRF is simultaneously employing two different immunotherapies (a PD-L1 inhibitor and a CTLA-4 inhibitor) that stimulate patients’ immune systems in the treatment of cervical cancer.

WCRF has been extremely productive in 2018, having published 15 peer review papers in prominent gynecologic oncology journals. These studies have described the researchers’ evolving experience with newer chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, innovative surgical procedures, and the overall progress in gynecologic cancer patient care.

In 2018, WCRF was proud to be the beneficiary of the 20th Annual Big Kahuna Bike Ride in Huntington Beach and the Annual Swing for the Cure in Spokane, Washington. Currently, we are in the process of arranging the 14th Annual WCRF Gala at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana on May 4, 2019. We hope you will join us.

In the spirit of the upcoming New Year, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible gift to WCRF at www.WomensCancerFoundation.com. This will help us achieve our goal of improving the cure rates for women with gynecologic cancer. WCRF prides itself on the fact that 90% of our contributions are directed invested in life-saving cancer research.

Thank you for being such dedicated and wonderful supporters. We are excited to share our progress with you in the near future and hope you will join us at the 14th Annual WCRF Gala.

Please have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.

Sincerely yours,

John Paul Micha, M.D.
