On Sunday, September 22rd, our Team will participate in the 10th Annual “Heat It To Beat It” Walk and you can be a part of it by making a donation on the Team fundraising page! This walk was launched nine years ago to raise awareness and funds for research for a unique surgery and treatment of the peritoneal cavity.
Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy ( HIPEC) is a highly effective, concentrated, heated chemotherapy that is delivered directly to cancer cells in the abdomen – this cancer is known as peritoneal carcinomatosis ( PC). The Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy is one of only a handful of medical institutions in the country that offer this treatment and is dedicating extensive research to the use of HIPEC in the fight against this rare form of cancer of the abdomen and organs within the abdominal cavity which includes ovarian cancer.
“Heat It To Beat It” refers to the use of the heated chemotherapy, which we’ve all learned is essential in beating this type of cancer! The walk is our vehicle to raise awareness and the necessary funds to continue the research that brings us this life saving treatment.
We hope you will consider supporting us and this important cause by making a donation by clicking the DONATE NOW button on the right side of this page! This way your donation will be added under the name of Gloria's Groupies.
