Guidance to Women

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer and the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists provide a “guidance to women,” that is distributed via the Foundation for Women’s Cancer’s Allied Support Group (ASG) when new findings are announced or when SGO issues a new position statement that requires clarification in order to ensure an accurate understanding of the new findings or position statement on the part of gynecologic survivors and the larger community.

Awareness

The CDC recently announced that fewer than half of American children are given the HPV vaccination.

Research

As of the July 23 deadline, 55 research abstracts were submitted in hopes of receiving one of only 6 grants from the Foundation. This points to a need for more funding so that the Foundation may award grants to every deserving applicant.
