Powell-Drescher Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation

The mission of the Powell-Drescher Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation is to power the future of ovarian cancer research by endowing funds and championing collaboration between scientist and survivor.

We believe that the input of ovarian cancer survivors to ongoing research is critical to its success.

Ovarian cancer survivors bring immense value to the research process but may lack the confidence to become involved, or understand how to reach the scientists.

Scientists have few avenues by which to meet survivors, yet the grant awards process increasingly benefits from (and sometimes requires) survivor involvement.

The Powell-Drescher Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation is working to bridge these gaps, and raise research money to combat this deadly disease.

Don’t let another 30 years pass without significant change.

Sachia, a patient and an energetic advocate for ovarian cancer research, and Dr. Drescher, a dedicated clinician and researcher, share something profound:  Together, through collaboration, the physician and the patient, the scientist and the survivor, have the power to change the statistics.
