Please join our fight to help very young women FIGHT THIS DEADLY CANCER.
Katie Oppo was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer in 2011. She was shocked at how little was known about this aggressive disease: Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary (Hypercalcemic Type) SCCOHT. Her wish was to shed light on this silent killer.
Our mission is to fund research into aggressive forms of ovarian cancer to find prevention, treatment, and cure so young women like Katie will not lose the fight as she did.
The Katie Oppo Research Fund provides funding for cutting edge research in Immunology, Genetics and Clinical trials.
Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate of cancers of the female reproductive system.
Ovarian Cancer is known as the Silent Killer because it is extremely difficult to detect in its early stages.
The Katie Oppo Research Fund believes in empowering young women to be their own reproductive health advocates by learning as much as they can about their bodies.
