Ovarian Cancer Awareness

13 Aug 2014 10:09 AM | Working Women (Administrator)

The Celma Mastry Ovarian Cancer Foundation is an all-volunteer organization and was started in 2003 by family and friends of Celma to help other women who were also suffering with this "silent killer." Celma herself was not diagnosed until late in the disease although she had been seeking treatment as she knew something was wrong.  Celma was a talented leader in the community, gracefully chairing numerous non-profit committees that enhanced the entire Tampa Bay area, including the arts, medical and educational groups. Her leadership, gifts of time and talent, and generous financial support made her a community icon.
 
Her brave battle with ovarian cancer made her our heroine. Celma died in 2004. Her spirit lives on in our Mission Statement:  "To unite family, friends, and community to fight ovarian cancer."   Celma is survived by eight children, a large extended family and many friends.
 
The Foundation goals are:
• Sponsor Research.
• Assist in the development of an early detection test, and in prevention.
• Educate the community.
• Offer financial assistance to patients in need.
