About the Laura Crandall Brown Ovarian Cancer Foundation
The Laura Crandall Brown Ovarian Cancer Foundation was founded in 2009 to carry on the legacy of Laura Crandall Brown, who lost her battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 25. The foundation has been able to fund over $250,000 towards early detection research grants to date. We also raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of gynecologic cancers through awareness events, including our Speaker's Bureau that implements speaking engagements throughout the state of Alabama free of charge. In the past year, our CanSurvive Support group has served more than 300 people, providing emotional, educational, and direct financial support to patients battling with GYN cancers and their loved ones. Join us in the pursuit for early detection – the chance to beat it, to fight it, to live!
