The mission of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is to eliminate ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness. HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, funds and inspires scientific researchers who focus on solving the ovarian cancer problem. HERA seeks collaborative partnerships that broadly expand research, awareness, and education. At the heart of HERA is the underlying premise that women need to have the knowledge and the confidence to fully understand and advocate for the direction of their health care. HERA accomplishes all of the above by offering community events that center on increasing self-esteem and confidence for all participants while raising funds for critical research grants.
