Founded By Survivors For Survivors.
Be the Difference Foundation was formed in 2012 by four ovarian cancer survivors, Helen Gardner, Jill Bach, Julie Shrell and Lynn Lentscher, who share the same passion to Be the Difference in the fight against ovarian cancer.
These women experienced first-hand the little hope given for survival when they were diagnosed. Several organizations focus on early detection efforts, but very few organizations provide hope to women in the fight.
Be The Difference Foundation was started to give survivors hope. Hope for better treatment options; hope for longer remissions and ultimately hope for a cure. Just 5 years after diagnosis, Co-founder Helen Gardner lost her battle in August 2014. Be The Difference Foundation is working tirelessly to realize Helen’s dream to make a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer.
Who they help: Teen mothers, women
