Fran Morast’s Virtual Fundraiser – Ongoing

Because of your support – to date we have raised $1500!

Frances Filippetti Morast was taken too early from her family and friends because of ovarian cancer. She died eleven years ago, and each day since her family has tried to emulate her life of love and caring, and respond to Fran’s deep desire that others would not have to suffer this terrible disease.

For ten years, The Frances Filippetti Morast 5K Walk/Run was held in Bridgewater, MA as a fundraiser to help the causes she cared deeply about – educating and preventing ovarian cancer, as well as providing scholarships to graduating seniors from the Bridgewater-Raynham High School. This year our focused has narrowed to saving women from ovarian cancer through early diagnosis and treatment options by this fundraising effort to benefit OVATIONS FOR THE CURE.

Therefore, this year, we have chosen to forgo the actual Walk/Run in favor of a Virtual Direct Appeal to each of you to make a contribution to Ovations in memory of Fran on her Ovations webpage.

Unfortunately, many of you are already aware of the pain and suffering that a diagnosis of ovarian cancer brings to a wide circle of family and friends. Please help us as we join together to make a difference in that scenario. Your past contributions, through Ovations, have funded educational programs for physicians and patients, cancer research, positive help for those undergoing treatment, and many other important activities focused on a road to recovery for ovarian cancer patients.

Our Virtual Fundraiser has no fee, only our plea for a donation of any amount. This allows 100% of your donation to fund the efforts of Ovations mission statement.

Please join us as we try to keep others from the sadness of losing a friend or family member to ovarian cancer.

Thank you for your support.
