Paige Anderson, a cervical cancer survivor, and her husband Mark have devoted many hours helping to create awareness about gynecologic cancer on Capitol Hill. Paige was instrumental in the U.S. House of Representative’s passage of a Congressional resolution supporting the ideals and goals of Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM) in September 2005. In addition, Paige and her husband Mark have raised more than $34,000 to date on behalf of the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (then called the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation).Mark is the co-coordinator of an annual charity golf tournament that raised over $8,000 for GCF last August.  Together, Paige and Mark coordinated the first annual winter tea to celebrate Paige’s two-year anniversary of being cancer-free. The proceeds of the tea were donated to GCF.
