MOTIVATION | ELYSE WALKER

I have been raising money for the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program for over 12 years. I lost my mom to stage four ovarian cancer when she was just 42 years old.

I’m in the dressing room with women every week and there isn’t a week that goes by in which I don’t hear about a cancer scare or concern. Thanks to my relationship with CSWCP, I have been able to connect people affected by cancer with hospitals all over the country. 

CSWCP brings doctors and scientists together and focuses on how cancer impacts women. From gender-specific cancers such as breast and ovarian, to other forms of cancer, which may affect women differently than men, the program does very important work. Led by Dr. Beth Karlan, whom I have known for a long time, CSWCP is one of the country’s foremost translational research programs. From clinical trials, new approaches to early detection, prevention and individualized treatments, cswcp is focused on improving cancer survival for women.
