Dorian Hirth Joins Clearity Board of Directors

The Clearity team welcomed a new director to the board. Dorian Hirth is currently Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Facilities Operations for Nektar Therapeutics and her experience spans 20 years in biotechnology.  Ms. Hirth will bring her extensive experience and passion to advance Clearity's mission. 

"Family members of mine were affected by cancer and so I have personally experienced the anxiety this causes and that those with cancer and their families are desperately looking for help and answers to come out ahead in this battle.
What draws me to Clearity is that it is made up of dedicated and engaged people who care that ovarian cancer specifically has not had the visibility and momentum behind it to generate the swell of supporters that say breast cancer or lung cancer has generated.  

I am humbled and elated to be joining the Board of Clearity Foundation because of my passion to bring awareness to others on how they can make a real difference to a cause that literally can be life altering," said Ms. Hirth.

Wheel to Survive Events in Texas Raise $485,000

More than 500 riders participated in Be the Difference Foundation's Wheel to Survive
indoor cycling events in Dallas and Austin, raising more than $485,000 between the two cities.  Dallas saw the most successful event in its three-year history, with more than 300 riders raising $354,000.  The inaugural Wheel to Survive event in Austin launched with 190 riders generating $133,000 in donations.  
Founded in 2012 by four survivors, Be the Difference Foundation was formed to help women increase their chance of survival of ovarian cancer.  Be the Difference Foundation has been a strong supporter of Clearity with both charitable contributions and support in organizing Wheel to Survive events in San Diego and San Francisco. 

Clearity Supporter Runs Copenhagen Marathon

Last year, Christine Clancy's mother was diagnosed with a form of ovarian cancer and despite treatment with excellent doctors in Boston, she is currently battling a recurrence. Her mom's battle inspired Christine to run the Copenhagen Marathon on May 18, 2014 to raise money for the Clearity. 


Christine says "The Clearity Foundation is an amazing organization on the cutting edge of ovarian cancer research, aiming to improve treatment options for women with this disease. I am hoping that in supporting good research now, there will be better options available in the future."
