The Tina’s Wish Boston Gathering was a huge success! Thank you to all our generous sponsors, supporters, Boston Gathering and NextGen Boston committees and 160 guests who came together last week to raise over $149,000 for critical scientific research for the early detection of ovarian cancer!
The program featured a meaningful fireside chat about genetics and analyzing one’s risk for cancer. Leslie Zmugg of Gordon Brothers shared her powerful story about discovering she is BRCA-2 positive, which puts her at a higher risk for developing ovarian, breast and other cancers. Through her involvement with Tina’s Wish, she was able to educate and empower herself, seek expert care, and ultimately undergo potentially lifesaving preventative surgery. Leslie’s genetic counselor, Lindsay Kipnis, MS CGC from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute shared important information about genetic risks and when to see a genetic counselor.
It’s not too late! If you would like to make a contribution in honor of the Boston Gathering and help us reach our goal of $150,000 to fully fund a Rising Star Grantee, please click the link below. The Brozman Family has generously agreed to match up to $10,000 for new and increased gifts.
All proceeds will advance the early detection and prevention of ovarian cancer.
