How Kicks for Cancer Donations Make an Impact
All donations from Kicks for Cancer 2021 will directly fund a joint research lab headed by Dr. Dipanjan Chowdhury (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute) and Dr. Kevin Elias (Brigham and Women’s Hospital). Dr. Chowdhury and Dr. Elias are developing a groundbreaking new blood test for early detection and diagnosis of ovarian cancer. They are working to get premarket approval (PMA) from the FDA in order to offer their serum microRNA diagnostic test for women with a known familial or genetic risk for ovarian cancer. The test enables the identification of non-metastatic ovarian cancer in asymptomatic women without requiring unnecessary surgeries or invasive tests. Once they have PMA approval, they can begin offering the test to patients. This is on the forefront of ovarian cancer research and KICKS is honored to donate the 2021 proceeds to support this important effort.
