Public Service Award Winner 2007: Sarah Biedenharn

SarahA graduate of Wellesley and Yale Law School, class of 1954, Sarah Biedenharn was married to Dr. Larry Biedenharn, a highly regarded physicist until his death from kidney cancer in 1996. She spent their years together being a faculty wife and rearing their two children.

A year later, Mrs. Biedenharn was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Since that time, she has worked with determination to help other women realize that a diagnosis of cancer is “not the end of it all.” She credits her physician, SGO/GCF member Dr. Ellen Smith, with her excellent care and the quality of her life as survivor.

Mrs. Biedenharn has been a generous donor to GCF’s efforts to educate women about ovarian cancer, especially its symptoms.
