Your gift will fuel life-changing discoveries

Wendy and her devoted husband, Jeff Rubin, started The Wendy Feuer Research Fund for the Prevention and Treatment of Ovarian Cancer. In 2000, the mother of two was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. She fought hard and with grace. She endured surgeries, chemotherapy, remissions, and recurrences, while also participating in multiple clinical trials to advance the search for a cure and more effective treatments. Her fund fuels research investigating both the prevention and treatment of ovarian cancer in the hope that others don’t have to go through what she did. 

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit organization that also serves as the cancer program for UW Medicine. Fred Hutch is proud to raise funds that fuel the adult oncology program on behalf of both Fred Hutch and UW Medicine.

Early detection is key to treating and curing ovarian cancer. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and UW Medicine are working to understand who is at elevated risk for these diseases and how we can tailor treatment based on specific genetic mutations to make care more effective.  

From developing cancer vaccines to improving early-detection methods, our researchers are committed to pursuing the next breakthroughs that will improve outcomes for patients. Learn more about ovarian cancer research at Fred Hutch.  

Contributions to The Wendy Fund help our teams investigate new ideas, gather data, and make important discoveries that increase our understanding of ovarian cancer and advance care for patients around the world. 

“Gynecologic cancer research receives a tiny fraction of the federal funding it should, based on incidence and mortality. Philanthropy allows us to pursue innovative approaches to clinical trials and give new hope to patients with rare tumors.”  

— Elizabeth Swisher, MD, co-leader, Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research Program, Fred Hutch; professor, UW Medicine
