Jill Di-Tommaso was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008.
We lost Jill on December 27, 2015.
She fought bravely for EIGHT years. We are heartbroken and we vow to fight with a vengeance this year! Help us raise more awareness and money than ever before!
Her friend, Laura Smith, worked tirelessly with Jill to raise awareness about this devastating disease. It was over a cup of coffee that they founded the girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. 5k Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer. Laura is more committed than ever to make 2018 the biggest year we have had!
The money raised goes directly to a fund directed by Dr. Ursula Matulonis to research a pre-screening tool for ovarian cancer. Dr. Matulonis is the Director of Gynecologic Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Read more about
