Mission Statement

Our mission is to raise awareness about the vague signs, symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer and to fund much needed research.

Description

Judy's Mission provides awareness to women in Houston and is currently funding two research grants focused on the early detection of ovarian cancer.

Judy's Mission was created to honor Judith Liebenthal Robinson, Ph.D. (Judy), a NASA scientist, who despite habitual exercise, a consistently healthy diet, and regular medical examinations, was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer and died within a year. While battling ovarian cancer, it was Judy's mission to raise awareness about the vague symptoms and ineffective screening procedures associated with ovarian cancer. She inspired all who knew her; and as a result, friends came together to create the Judith Liebenthal Robinson Ovarian Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was founded in November 2010.
