PFP: Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Please click below to watch a video from an Ovarian Cancer survivor, Emma

The Annual Pies for Prevention Thanksgiving Bake Sale was founded by sisters Adeena Sussman and Sharon Wieder. This grassroots initiative was founded in memory of their mother and grandmother both of whom they lost to ovarian cancer. All proceeds from this sale go to benefit Sharsheret’s Ovarian Cancer awareness program.

Sharsheret’s Ovarian Cancer Program offers tailored resources and support for Jewish women facing ovarian cancer. Over the past 13 years this bake sale has raised more than $715,000 and responses to the program have been overwhelmingly positive. As one caller said, “Supporting women with ovarian cancer and making strides to build awareness about it is so important.”
