Colleen’s Dream Foundation Gifts $10,000 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to Support Ovarian Cancer Research

>"There’s no reliable early detection method for ovarian cancer," says Zacharias Millward. "Due to lack of symptoms at the early stage, more than two thirds of all diagnosed cases occur after the disease has progressed to stage III."

Statistics show when a woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer in stage l or ll, her chance of survival is around 90%. When diagnosed in stage lll or lV, there is a less than 50% chance of survival for more than five years.

Zacharias Millward says these statistics underscore the pressing need to develop ways to detect and treat ovarian cancer. She also says it is personal.

"As one who had to watch a family member be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at stage IV, I realize the need for a reliable early diagnostic marker for ovarian cancer," she says.

Zacharias Millward hopes her research will help change these statistics.

"I hope my research, in collaboration with oncologists, will lead to early diagnosis and better treatment options for ovarian cancer patients," says Zacharias Millward. "Because cancer is a heterogeneous disease and can mutate after treatment, and become resistant to drugs over time, it’s hard to determine when ovarian cancer will be a thing of the past. MD Anderson is an excellent place to make an impact in the treatment, diagnosis and outcome of patients with ovarian cancer. The scientific and clinical advances being made at MD Anderson will dramatically improve the prognosis for women with ovarian cancer in the next ten years."
