Elected Officials, Businesses and Individuals Expected to Raise $20k to Help Find an Early Detection Test for Ovarian Cancer
Good Friends, YMCA, Humana and North Florida Women’s Care team up with Commissioners Dozier, Gillum & Miller for 3rd Annual Ovarian Cycle
TALLAHASSEE: In a 6 hour time period, 10 women will die from Ovarian Cancer. Hopefully the $20,000 raised so far for this Sunday’s 6-hour indoor cycling event will help efforts to find an early detection test for this deadly disease.
On May 20th, Good Friends Group Fitness, YMCA of Apalachee Parkway and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance will be joined by corporate sponsors Humana and North Florida Women’s Care and local businesses such as Bagelheads and Bumble Bee Waxing to host this annual event. The largest contribution came from Rare Antibody Antigen Supply, Inc., a US plasmapheresis company supplying specialized plasma to the fractionation industry.
