Demain, c’est la journée « Mardi je donne ». Voici un message important de Lawrie Shahbazian, une coordonnatrice du projet DOvEEgene The DOVEE Project

« Les femmes qui reçoivent un diagnostic de cancer de l’ovaire ou de l’endomètre se posent souvent cette question : ‘ J’ai pris soin de ma santé. J’ai passé les examens, les tests Pap et les mammographies. Qu’est-ce que j’aurais pu faire de plus?’ La réponse, c’est DOvEEgene. Notre test minimalement invasif fonctionne, ici et maintenant. Nous en sommes à la dernière étape de notre marathon, le passage aux essais cliniques de stade trois. En tant que jeune femme, je compte bien voir les résultats et les bienfaits de notre travail acharné de mon vivant. Avec votre aide, nous sauverons des vies.”

Ahead of #GivingTuesday tomorrow, we’re sharing an important message Lawrie Shahbazian, a project coordinator The DOVEE Project :

“The question women diagnosed with ovarian or endometrial cancer often ask is: 'I took care of my health. I did my screenings, my pap tests, and my mammograms. What else could I have done?' DOvEEgene is the answer. Our minimally invasive test will work here and now. This is the last leg of our marathon, getting it to a stage three clinical trial. As a young woman, I plan to see the results and benefits of all this hard work in my lifetime. We will save lives.” 🙌❤️

Help make the DOvEEgene test the standard of care.
