The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization created as a tribute to the life, character and immense strength of Sandy Rollman. Sandy passed away from advanced ovarian cancer in May 2000. Prior to diagnosis, Sandy experienced many textbook symptoms. Her symptoms were whispering only no one was listening. The tragic result was that Sandy never had a chance against ovarian cancer.

Her sister Adriana Way and her nurse Robin Cohen decided to keep Sandy’s memory alive while trying to prevent other women from having to endure the same pain as she did. It is in Sandy’s memory and the memory of all women who have succumbed to this insidious disease, that the Foundation has dedicated their efforts to help conquer ovarian cancer. To this day, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of death among women in the United States, affecting 1 out of every 79 women. Considered the most deadly of the gynecologic cancers, ovarian cancer is often difficult to diagnose because symptoms may be subtle, are easily confused with other diseases and because there is no single, reliable easy-to-administer screening tool or cure.
