Description

The Betty Allen Ovarian Cancer Foundation was founded on February 14, 2011 in honor of my mother Betty Allen, a 10-year survivor of ovarian cancer. After I witnessed my mother’s courageous battle, I knew I had to do something to help raise awareness.

Our foundation is very concerned that most women lack the knowledge about the symptoms and risk factors of the five gynecologic cancers, and believe that their yearly Pap smear detects all gynecologic cancers. The Pap test only detects cervical cancer.

In May 2016, our board members reorganized the foundation to focus on all the gynecologic cancers in support of YOU! The foundation is now known as the Betty Allen Gynecologic Cancer Foundation.

If I were to ask you to name the gynecologic cancers, could you?
Do you know their symptoms?

We believe Knowledge is Power. Please explore our website and share it with your family and friends.

Your survival is our mission. Make it yours too!

Warmest Regards,
Sharie Allen Kearns
