Saving Lives through Research
Cures for gynecological cancers are within our reach. But we need to do more to move therapies and treatments from the lab to the patient. We need to Up the Volume.
New cancer treatments are continually being developed and tested against standard therapies. In order for a new drug to become part of standard treatment recommendations, it must be proven to be superior to current standards through rigorous clinical trials.
In addition to new therapies, there are many unanswered controversies in the way Gynecologic Oncologists use known treatments. These controversies result in treatment decisions that differ from one institution to another based on differences in physician training, philosophy, and beliefs, but not on definitive evidence. Until these questions are definitively answered by large-scale clinical trials, women with gynecologic cancers will not be treated uniformly with the best clinical practices and therapies.
The Up the Volume Foundation exists to support major medical research Our primary goal is to raise money to support major research that will identify the best treatments and end controversies in order to improve the lives of women with these deadly diseases
